You might try contacting the "National Prion Disease Pathology Surveillance Center" located at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.  Their telephone number is (216) 368-0587.

I work at Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena, CA.  We have a
temporal artery biopsy on a woman who probably has CJD.  We do not want
to process and cut the tissue here  for obvious reasons.  The tissue has
been in phenol formalin for about a week and will be going into formic
acid this afternoon.  Is there anyone in the area who is set up for
cutting CJD cases and would be willing to take over this case for us?
