We would freeze the tissue in liquid nitrogen or on dry ice and ship
overnight on dry ice.  You will need to check the regs with Fed Ex or UPS as
they may be the only ones who will take a dry ice shipment.  I know some of
the overnight shippers don't take dry ice at all. The biggest problem will
be making sure the person doing the freezing and packing does it exactly.

Hey histonetters!,

Need a quick response to this question if possible.

We need to know the best way to send tissue through the mail that will be
used for frozen sections when it arrives in our lab. We want to avoid any
type of fixation and want the best preservatioin of the tissue possible.
Would appreciate any help with this!
