Would you further define or point me towards a regulatory definition of
"Dangerous Goods".
Thanks, Greg

Subject: [Histonet] Paraffin blocks - Dangerous goods?

I have just been told that paraffin tissue blocks are considered
"Dangerous Goods" and can only be packaged and shipped by individuals
who have received special training.  Would anyone like to comment on
this?  Thank you.
