Hi all,

Our company is planning to start receiving formalin fixed,human brain tumor
samples from their clients. I have not personally worked with brain in my
career and was hoping to get some pointers from my fellow histoneters.

I was hoping to get some advise on the following:
- Any special precautions needed to be taken when handling these samples
(prions, ect)?
- Section thickness
- Staining setup for H&E
- Common artifacts
- Any other pointers you may have.

Thank you in advance!
