RE: currettings, nylon bags, tissue papers

From:"Martin, Ronald"

Sakura makes mesh biopsy cassettes, multiple colors, 500/case for
$306.00/case. Fisher also makes biopsy bags. They may work well for
curretting cases.

		Endometrial currettings in nylon bags from Shandon (they
have 3 or 4
		sizes), other companies have these too. We have used stiff,
smooth lens
		paper (but make sure it is not going to shred as some papers
are sturdier
		than others).  A fine mesh bag could be made from recycled
ladies knee high
		sheer nylon dress socks, pantyhose was suggested some years
ago for large
		bone slabs and did work - so everyone can laugh now! Or go
to a fabric
		store and buy some fine nylon mesh fabric, make own bags??

		What about the mesh cassettes available these days, how do
people like
		them? There is one with an mesh insert that folds over to
hold currettings,
		looked like a nice design for this purpose.
