RE: [Histonet] Additional question on POC for Genetic Studies

From:"Bauer, Karen"

We are called in.  Since our histology dept. shuts down at 5:30 pm, the histologist on call would have to come in and gross the tissue and select the appropriate sample for chromosome analysis.  If the specimen came to the lab at, let's say 2 am., we would instruct the night personnel to place the specimen in the histology refrigerator and we would gross it in when we arrived in the lab at 4:30 am.  There are times when the OB physician demands the specimen get immediate attention, so we can be called in at any time to do them.

Subject: [Histonet] Additional question on POC for Genetic Studies

All of the responses I've received regarding what department sends out tissue for genetic studies state that Pathology sends the tissue out.  We are told that the tissue needs to be sent out as soon as possible.  What do you do if the tissue comes in at night or on the weekend?
