Our specimen in histo are from regular histo, cyto and morgue. We
distinguish the incoming number with a letter at the beginning:
Eg. C 00123/08 or O 000123/08 ... in the IT-System it is found as C0800123
and so on.

For your specimen it could be M for mouse, R for rabbit, H for human ....
Is that a useful hint?

            Currently, in my tissue log book I have a column headed,
FIXATION NUMBER. Here I give every new piece of tissue I receive a
sequential number, year and the next number. Now that my brief includes
human anatomy I think that this simple term might not be enough. The tissue
will still have the same number; it's just that I think a new column heading
is needed. What I'm looking for is the term widely used in labs that would
cover everything from pieces of research mammalian tissue to human material.

            Isn't it always the simplest things that really tax the brain?
