RE: [Histonet] Block disposal

Allen, Michael,

Better check with legal services.  I think you have to get permission
to give away those blocks even though they are ready for disposal.

Why don't you give them to the Cooperative Human Tissue Network (3400
St., Philadelphia, PA  19104)?  Academic research is starving for both
normal and diseased human tissue.

Help! Our off site storage facility is overflowing with old paraffin
blocks. We know the 10 year limit according to CAP.  Our dilemma is
to dispose of them. Correct me us if were wrong, but we have a bio
hazard company, and were thinking red back the blocks, and place in
provided bio hazard containers.  Any thoughts?
