[Histonet] Slide storage

From:"Barry R Rittman"

This may be somewhat of a mute point as many of the fluorescent markers
fade over time, sometimes over very short times. This is especially true
when exposed to the viewing illumination for some time. It also depends
on the storage conditions, are these slides frozen, paraffin, what
mountant if any are they in and what conditions of storage? It would be
best if a record is required to photograph the image on which the
diagnosis is made and store this image. I realize that for many labs
this may not be a possibility.

Can someone answer a question regarding slide retention for me? How long
to labs keep their immunofluorescence slides?
