I would look into the institutions from who(m?) you're getting the
specimens.  They might not let anyone take the tissue off of the
facility grounds.  With a university lab, we can't even move tissue to
another lab without filling out forms.  Also, human tissue is BSL-2,
at least, right?

If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them
down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.
