Hi All,

Would anyone tell me what their lab procedure is for handling fetal demise placentas?

In previous jobs sites, the histotech and/or PA would read the requisition and determine if there may be later DNA testing ordered.

If yes, put in fridge and contact pathologist and/or physician.

If not, place in formalin.

Currently, our PA automatically places every placenta in formalin....

Kind regards,
