RE: [Histonet] POC for Genetic Studies

From:"Bauer, Karen"

Hi Laurie,
We are the ones responsible for sending out specimens for chromosome analysis.  We have Hank's Solution sent to us by Mayo Clinic, and when we are notified that a specimen is coming for chromosomal analysis, we gross in the (fresh/unfixed) specimen and put recognizable chorionic villi into the solution.  Paperwork for Mayo is filled out by our secretaries and we have it sent to them by courier.
Good Luck,
Karen Bauer HT(ASCP)
Histology Supervisor

This question is for those of you who work in hospitals and send out POC tissue for genetic studies/chromosome analysis.

Does the tissue get sent out directly from Labor and Delivery, or does the tissue go through Pathology and Pathology sends it out?
