[Histonet] Formalin in plastic bags

From:"Patricia Karlisch"

   There are standards for sending specimens that are in a hazardous solution, like Formalin.  Plastic bags are secondary containers and should not be used to transport fluid. The specimens should be in a secure  plastic container that seals tightly and will not puncture causing injury to others.
