Pneumatic tubing of surgical specimens

From:"Cazares, Ruth"

Hello again Histonetters,

Is anyone using Pneumatic tube Systems for surgical specimens?  Are
specimens in formalin being sent, or just fresh tissue? And does high
velocity affect the tissues in any way?  We are trying to find a faster way
of getting our specimens from the O.R. and since there is already an
existing Tube system we are exploring the possiblity of using it for
Histology specimens if possible.

Any and all information, suggestions etc. is welcome and appreciated.
