Re: Foetal Muscle

From:Stephen.Eyres@sanofi-synthelabo.com


Hi Andy,
Do you know anyone at the RVI, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK? They have a big
unit doing muscle biopsy work. They have centralised and so I'm not sure if
the unit is at the Freeman or the RVI. If you don't, Terry Coker is the
Histology Manager and would be able to put you onto the right person.
Cheers
Steve

In a couple of weeks I'm going to be freezing  a foetal muscle (probably
20-22 weeks depending on operation date) sample for histochemistry and
dystrophy antibodies.  If anyone has any experience of dealing with foetal
muscle I would appreciate any words of wisdom. Although I have done plenty
of work on neonates I have never dealt with samples from a live foetus.
