Good morning all and happy Friday!
My company provides testing on FFPE material, and we received paraffin blocks and/or unstained slides and H&E stained slides. The blocks and H&E stained slides are returned to the originating path lab after the results are generated (currently 2-3 weeks after receipt).
For those labs that do this type of work, how do you organize and store the material in a way that makes it easy and efficient to return? Are you using a particular system of containers, put things in numerical order, or by patient name, or other option? We receive about 60-100+ blocks a day and probably 20-40 H&E slides a day. Having to keep them for 2-3 weeks' time can give us a considerable inventory to manage.
