RE: storage of tissues

Jane, from personal past experience, DO NOT let them put the blocks in an non-airconditioned mini-storage!  (no , I didn't do that, a pathologist did!).

Subject: storage of tissues

Our facility is having growing pains and we need to move many years worth of cassettes to a new location.  What are minimum standards or guidelines for facilities where tissue is stored?
 e.g  temperature ranges, humidity, insect control  etc.
With newer techniques, I can only assume that the storage conditions will become a more important consideration in the handling of tissue.  We are having difficulty convincing the facilities personnel that are storage areas are important too!.  Thanks
