RE: Use of Michel's medium for renal biopsies

From:"Weems, Joyce"

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.

	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
appears to
	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,
and has
	anyone experience of it in this field?
