Does anyone out there get muscle biopsies sent to them from far away? (ie: a
few hours transport time)
How are they sent to you? (Fresh? or Frozen in proper orientation?)
I am wondering if anyone has any idea how long a muscle bx can be held on
ice before the diagnostic value of the tissue is compromised. Any
information would be greatly appreciated.
