RE: liver biopsy for quantitztive iron
It's been a few years since I've dealt with them, but here it goes. We would send them to Mayo Clinic. They would provide us with metal free vials to place the specimen in. At our institution, the physician would ask for one of the vials in advance. They would submit 2 biopsies, one in formalin and one in the metal free vial. The sample sent out for quantitative iron was sent out dry. I'm sure that Mayo Clinic has a web site where you could get more up to date information.

Subject: liver biopsy for quantitztive iron
I'm trying to help a friend out who is looking for a written protocol for
the initial handling (eg., collection, storage, fixation?) of liver bxs for
quantitative iron(assuming the specimen is actually sent out for the
procedure) in cluding background information on what the procedure is and
what it may involve. Thanks in advance for any help.
