RE: necropsy trays

From:"Allen, Steven"


We had a similar need for individual compartments for individual organs.  We
found these clear fishing tackle boxes with removable walls so you can make
small compartments for organs like heart and kidneys and big compartments
for the GI tract.  They were about 12"x8" and 1.5" tall.  We found them at
Wal-Mart in the fishing section.  Hope this helps.

Subject: necropsy trays

  Hi All,

I am looking for a plastic tray with a plastic insert that is used during
necropsy to put the tissue in for check out purposes.
The plastic tray insert has individual compartments that are 4 across and 4
down, therefore having 16 individual compartments.  We make up a tissue list
to put in the bottom of the bottom tray, so you can see the tissue list,
therefore putting the right tissue in the right compartment.  The bottom
tray is made out of some kind of white plastic, and the compartment tray is
clear plastic.  The company that used to make them has gone out of business
and I can't find them any where.   HELPPPPP.
