Re: [Histonet] Tissue Blocks for Research and Development

From:"Mary Reeves"

In my lab the medical director insists that every slide is labeled with a computer generated label from LIS.  Some of our research clients would prefer us to only write on the slides with pencil and not place a printed label on the slide.  I am curious to find out what other institutions that perform research work on patient material are doing?

I have seen a number of emails regarding control tissue sources etc. I would like to make the suggestion of contacting your local Tissue Bank. IRB's may be obtained for research and development. Armed with an IRB approval protocol and the signing of a "No Resale Agreement" will enable most Tissue Bank's to  be a good resource. Patient information is de-identified, diagnosis and quality assurance testing will insure worthy tissue blocks.
