This inquiry applies to those of you collecting human tissue for research.  I am being asked to develop pricing for the following activities regarding collection of biospecimens from surgery, image-guided biopsies, endoscopic biopsies, bone marrow biopsies, and body fluids:

1.  Collection of fresh tissue and freezing in liquid nitrogen.
2.  Collection of fresh tissue and placement in tissue culture media.
3.  Preparation of one paraffin block containing formalin-fixed tissue.
4.  The preparation of one unstained slide from a paraffin block.

I would appreciate hearing from those of you who might already have charges established for these activities.  Thank you very much for your time.  Happy "National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week" to all!
