Re: [Histonet] The Use of Placenta in the Understanding of Perinatal Injury
A= t the hospital that I worked at we kept all placentas for one
week. = We purchased a large refrigerator, like in a convenience
store, and divi= ded the shelves into days of the week. When
Monday rolled around th= e placentas from the previous Monday were
disposed of. The refriger= ator was kept in the Labor and Delivery
area. If there were any que= stions days after the birth the
placenta was available for testing. = We still did histology on
the abnormals, multiple births or any with quest= ions.
Am looking f= or information on collection, fixation and storage of
Is anyo= ne out there doing pathology on all placentas from there
If= so, what are you doing for storage. Do you freeze any tissue
for possible<= BR>in-situ studies?
