I hope this doesn't open a can of worms, but our medical director would like to know how other labs are handling block and slide disposal when there is a cancer center involved.  His concern is that even though we are following CAP and state guidelines when we discard after 10 years, the cancer center folks will request something older and we won't be able to help them.  I can't think of a way to identify, retrieve and hold this material that doesn't give me a headache.
