Re: [Histonet] Who stores the old blocks?

From:Gayle Callis

A similar thing happened to our lab, we did human renal biopsies for 
several years.  All blocks and duplicate accession records were given to 
the physician.  I suggets for future work like this, give them all blocks, 
unstained and stained slides are given to the physician for storage at the 
time you return a stained slide.  You can help them set up a block storage 
unit -
