RE: muscle biopsies

Have a look at the many, previous posts on this subject.  Shipping in dry ice is fine but you need to change your freezing method.  Change to an isopentane/liquid nitrogen system.

Subject: muscle biopsies

We send our muscle biopsies to a referral lab.  Their protocol is to freeze the muscle in a mixture of acetone and dry ice and then ship the specimen in dry ice.  We have a problem of freeze artifact, that is in the report, that the lab send ours.   Does anyone do a process, like this and if so, do you have any suggestions, on how to eliminate the freeze artifact?
