Re: Thanks and inquiry


I sympathize with you handling samples from all over.  At the NSH S/C John
McGinley ( presented a great poster on the effects of
samples being left out in the weather and all sorts of handling problems.  His
were cytology samples of sputum but I am sure some of the issues would still
apply to histology samples.  He showed artifacts atributed to handling that
could not even be seen until looking more closely as we have to do to
determine if a cell in malignant, don't we?
