Re: [Histonet] pneumatic tube for specimen transport

From:"Linda Blazek"

We don't use the tube system for transporting wet tissue at all.  We have used it for blocks and slides though. - Linda

Posted on behalf of Sue Lewis:

I would like to know if there are work areas or labs using a pneumatic tube system to transport wet tissue, FFPE blocks and/or slides between work areas.  If anyone were using a tube system, would you share any challenges, successes or recommendations?

Thank you,

Sue Lewis
