Hello all,
I would like to get a sample of responses from people about what they think
is the optimal time and procedure for fixing breast specimens for doing
immuno for ER, PR and Her 2 Neu.  To include core samples, and lumpectomies
with types of fixatives and times.  Especially those using an streptavidin -
biotin detection system.  What about weekend specimens? Thanks- all input is
much appreciated---I will share the responses.
