Specimen Requirements

Comments

If EM is requested specimen must be sent in glutaraldehyde (preferred) or fresh (ASAP; within 1 hour refrigerated).

If a member of the AP staff is not present at biopsy, call CPA via Vocera ('CPA Lab’), immediately after collection for a pick up. The specimen MUST be accompanied with a tissue requisition which includes all patient information (patient name, date of birth, medical record number, pertinent history, sending institution and tests required).
