We have used M-Labs (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor) labs for over 20 years. Their protocol, complete with pictures is found online at:

go to:
 Anatomic Pathology
 Nerve/muscle biopsy
 Muscle biopsy tissue submission protocol

This protocol has never failed us!!

Subject: [Histonet] Muscle Biopisy Procedure

Our lab never had the opportunity to perform a muscle biopsy procedure until now: we have a request for one.  Since we never did one, we don't have a written procedure.

We are looking for a  benchmark or proven written procedure to freeze and ship the specimen to the Joint Pathology Center in Washington DC for processing.

We will not perform any other aspects of the procedure, just the freeze and ship.

Hope to do this next week.  Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
