How to package samples for processing:

Please place tissues or cassettes in leak-proof containers and label containers with:

  • Your name
  • Name of chemical you are submitting your tissues in. This is important for the safety of our staff and for proper waste disposal.
  • Label all cassettes using a #2 pencil or a solvent resistant marker.
  • Do NOT use a Sharpie marker or other lab markers that are not completely solvent resistant. TTSR is not responsible for labels lost in processing due to use of a marker that is not solvent resistant
