A request of frozen sectioning heart and lung tissue on a research project
has been asked by a fellow doing this research.  He would like to know what
our lab would charge for "just frozen sectioning a couple of slides"
I, of course, informed the fellow that it would be $50.00 a slide, as
material is brought in over embedded in OCT and has to be trimmed down to
fit the molds used in the cryostat; the material is also brought unevenly
embedded; and there is always a "stat" deadline to meet due to a grant being
Has anyone else had to do this type of work and is willing to share what
they charged?
Thanking in advance to responses,
