HIPPA might have a problem with that.   That's why we can't even get extra

[Histonet] RE:Disposal of tissue blocks

Most places use an incinerator.  But on the other hand I have another
suggestion.  I work in research and we are always looking for ways to 
up our tissue block resources.  We make tissue microarrays and do tons of
IHC on the TMAs.  I would love to have another site I could get some 
from.  We routinely set up IRB approved projects to obtain a certain 
of blocks with limited path report information which stays in line with
HIPPA guidelines.  If this might sound like something your facility would 
interested in please contact me in private.
