RE: Use of Michel's medium for renal biopsies
Yes, this is used by the University of North Carolina for their biopsies.
They prepare kits containing buffered glutaraldehyde, formalin, and
Michel's. We always send FedEx for overnight delivery.

Subject: Use of Michel's medium for renal biopsies
I need to provide a renal biopsy service to a remote site. I am
using immunofluorescence (IF) on fresh frozen tissue rather than
immunoperoxidase on paraffin processed tissue. Michel's medium
be used successfully for skin biopsies and IF, although I have no
experience of its use.
Can it be used equally well for transport of renal biopsies for IF,
anyone experience of it in this field?
