We do not tube any tissue samples, fresh or fixed, and yes, we do have a tube station available to us. 

Potential contamination of the tube system from a leaking specimen container is one legitimate concern but we also have some here worried that a fresh specimen might enter the tube system never to be seen again. I'm not sure how realistic that fear is with modern systems that track each transaction however I'm reluctant to find out the hard way. Emotions aside, as a matter of policy we do not tube any tissues.
