Re: [Histonet] Who stores the old blocks?
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
