Subject: [Histonet] Prostate core biopsy submission

Hello Histo-netters:

My lab is starting to bring in more business with prostate core
biopsies. Some of the submitting physicians would like to use a small
piece of towel to lay the biopsy on and then place it and the core
biopsy into the formalin container. Does anyone have any suggestions for
what type of material would be suitable for this? I am afraid that
anything cottony will be a problem when removing the biopsy during
processing as it may stick.

Thank you for your help.
