RE: [Histonet] Container

From:"Gladney, Diane C Ms MACH"

You may have a hard time finding gallon size specimen containers with screw
tops. Our OR has a large deep tray with a handle that they use to transport
specimens to the Histology Dept. The containers that they are now using have
lids that snap on snuggly and I sometimes have difficulty getting these lids
off. How do they transport the containers to your lab? I have found that
screw top containers will leak like crazy if the lids are not put on
straight. We have trouble from our clinics even with the small screw top
containers leaking because they won't take the time to put the lids on

Our OR has asked that we get different containers for the larger
specimens.  Our current container is the basic container with a snap
lid, they would like a screw top lid.  The concern is if the container
is dropped it will leak with the containers we have now.  The only
problem I am having is trying to find a gallon screw top container.  Any
ideas?  Again thank you in advance.
