RE: [Histonet] Pneumatic tube

From:"Bonner, Janet"

We do not use it at all due to the reasons you listed, as well as the fear of it getting "lost" to another location - ( we're a really big facility ).

Hi everyone, 

I am wondering who is using a pneumatic tube for sending pathology 
specimens into the lab.  We have a tube system set up throughout the 
hospital and lab, however we do not use it for the pathology part of the 
lab due to the risk of formalin spilling and contamination of the tube. 
Any information, procedures or policies that you have would really be 

Thank you,
