RE: [Histonet] paraffin blocks

From:"Edmondson David (RBV) NHS Christie Tr"

Hi,  Did you have any replies?
Our files go back sixty or seventy years,  so the issue has not arisen.   I
imagine incineration to be the "normal" course of events.  That is how the
left overs from the macro are handled.   Recording the blocks/samples
disposed of would be important along with someones signature.   A decision
made that the patients are deceased and never to need the material reviewed.

Did I miss all the replies on this subject?  I was looking forward to
reading all the reponses; my lab is currently in a dilemma about how to
handle disposal of these items.  Afraid to share/admit?

We have our own incinerator.  That's where all this stuff goes.

Hi;
I  like to know how do other Histology Lab. get rid of paraffin blocks
that are 20+years.   Do you have a medical waste company destroy them or
do you do it your self?
Thank you for answer me as quickly as possible.
