I'm a private lab that receives legs from a hospital in red biohazard bags,
transported by a commercial courier service. I haven't heard of this. I
don't think there are any reusable containers that are long enough. I mean,
what if the patient has 48 inch legs?

Subject: [Histonet] LEG TRANSPORT

I have just been told that I cannot use the red bags to transport a leg from
Surgery to the lab and than to disposal. It is illegal to reach inside the
bag to remove anything once it has been put in it. I would like to know how
everyone else is handling this problem. Is there a transport vehicle that is
just for legs? If so where do i get it?
 Thanking you in advance
