[Histonet] Sentinel nodes...

Sentinel nodes...

Hello all,

I apologize upfront because I know that this has probably been discussed a great deal but I can't seem to get any information out of the archives.....  What precautions do you take in Histology/Pathology for sentinel node biopsies?  Any concerns for pregnancy? 

The information that I have is years old but it says that:
        Specimens should be transported in lead lined container
        Biopsies should remain in the lead lined container for least 8 hours (large specimens longer)

Like I said, this is old and I'm sure out of date.
