Re: Tea Bag Transportation

From:Connie McManus <>

I don't know if I'm on the same page as you, but in my early days working
in the hospital in Salt Lake City, we used tea bags to fold over very tiny
specimens.  It was our job to cut the sewn edges off so there was only one
layer of tea bag and the pathologist wrapped the bx or small tissue up
inside it and it worked great.  Today, we use hair permanent end papers,
they work just as well, tool.

I hope this is helpful
