Subject: Use of Michel's medium for renal biopsies

I need to provide a renal biopsy service to a remote site.  I am happier
using immunofluorescence (IF) on fresh frozen tissue rather than
immunoperoxidase on paraffin processed tissue.  Michel's medium appears to
be used successfully for skin biopsies and IF, although I have no personal
experience of its use.

Can it be used equally well for transport of renal biopsies for IF, and has
anyone experience of it in this field?
