We had the same situation about a year ago. We sent the block and a bucal smear out for DNA analysis.
Now we have the Vantage system to assure positive patient id. Check into it. It saves time and worry and assures patient safety.

Subject: [Histonet] Block Verification
Our histology lab would like to verify that 2 paraffin blocks are from the same person to calm a pathologist's fears. Does anyone know of a good test for this purpose...PCR of some sort perhaps?? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank-you In Advance,
Glen Dawson BS, HT & QIHC (ASCP)
