RE: thyroid tissue for HT exam

From:Robert Geske <>

your size requirements prevent me from helping you with mouse tissue.  if
you live close to large academic institutions you may be able to contact
someone in a department of comparative medicine that could help you procure
tissue from a large animal that is destined for euthanasia. if you strike
out there you might want to try a local slaughterhouse for the needed

Subject: thyroid tissue for HT exam

I know this is a long shot but the tech in the lab I work in is currently 
doing her HT practical and needs thyroid that isn't autolysed.  We work in a

small hospital, not many thyroidectomies or posts, and everything we've come

up with isn't suitable.  We tried a neighboring hospital with no luck.  She 
needs a 1.0x1.0 piece of thyroid asap as her slides have to be sent in next 
Friday, March 16.  We're in MA and would be happy to pay shipping, etc.  If 
anyone can help, please respond off net and we can figure out logistics. 
I realize I'm asking the impossible!
