Good Morning to All,
We, as often as possible, try not to release blocks for studies or legal cases.  Most studies will let you submit 10-20 unstained recut slides on Plus slides.  On legal cases, we always give recuts if there is enough tissue.  When slides will not suffice, we will send the block and keep a record of the block being sent.

Subject: [Histonet] Block release


I have been asked to post a query as to what your institution does in terms of releasing blocks for oncology clinical trials. Please respond as it is important to us as we receive a lot of those blocks here at Northwestern (policies, procedures, alternative submissions etc) If you are in Australia, Ireland, Canada, Puerto Rico or Peru please also answer (though I sort of know already) as we do get blocks from you also.
