RE: Papers for endometrial curettings

You might try Shandon's biopsy bags.  We pour small specimens into a bag
through a wide-mouth "particle funnel".  Bigger pieces may be placed in the
bag.  Easy to see the specimen and tear open the bag when embedding.

Subject: Papers for endometrial curettings

When we are grossing endometrial curettings we have been using a tissue
paper to wrap the specimens and then place in a cassette.
Now everything sticks to the paper which is a real pain when at the
embedding center. The tissue paper we use is also used for hair
permanents. Does anybody have any ideas that work great?
