Hi there Histoland!

Our department has been hit by several 'query' CJD surgical cases lately,
since we rarely handled any questionable cases in the past  we are trying to
prepare an updated protocol that will include the handling of these
specimens from begining to end.
I would appreciate hearing from anyone who deals with CJD cases from safety
protocols, protocols on deactivation, processing, cutting and staining,
everything and anything dealing with CJD.
