Is a cover letter necessary?

No, if clinical information is entered on the requisition form, a separate cover letter is not needed.

How should slides be packaged?

Slides should be placed in either a plastic slide case or a cardboard slide folder and mailed in a padded envelope to ensure they do not break in transport.

Should tissue blocks or blanks be sent with the case?

Most cases will not need special stains, but inclusion of either blanks or blocks will guarantee rapid completion of cases that do require additional stains.

Should I include AFB, GMS or PAS stains even if they are negative?

Yes, if possible, we would like to see all the slides available for the case.

How can I obtain the results?

Reports will be faxed to your office as soon as they are completed, and a hardcopy will be mailed at the same time. In most cases, we also can email reports to you directly.
