Advance for Medical Laboratory Professionals had a good article in the 
November 1, 2004 issue.  It is under the Q&A section, titled:  Standards 
for Shipping Infectious Agents.  Check to check the 
archives.  If you can't find it, I can fax you a copy.  There is also an 
old article titled "Safe Specimen Packaging Begins with You.  It is from 
the November 12, 2001 issue.

[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.
