[Histonet] Question for those with private histo labs

From:"Jim Staruk"

I am trying to obtain general liability insurance to cover my histology
practice and my independent insurance agent claims he contacted 17
different insurers and says he cannot get general liability insurance
for my building unless I have professional liability insurance first
($30,000 to $40,000 per year).  I told my agent I make slides for third
parties (mostly research and academic) and I have no "patients" that can
possibly sue me and I don't sign my name on reports.  He says I own a
medical practice and that magical word "medical" scares off any
insurance company.

Has anyone else had to deal with something like this?  Can some private
labs offer me the names of their insurers so I can get some insurance
before I have to close my lab?

Anyone requiring payment for answering my request need not reply.
