Mainly to UK histologists.

Have you seen the new Postal Regulations for infectious substances
which come into effect Jan 1st 1999?  Regs known as U.N. 602
Obliquely related I know, but would be interested to know what
packaging being used for fixed tissue coming to the lab by post. I am
thinking particularly of commercial packaging and about the Post
Office "return container" service.

 My guess is that there would be some argument about whether tissue
- formalised or not, forgive the word - was infectious, especially
given those little p's.
