Question: How do I transport my tissue slide to another facility when tissue has already been placed?
Answer: The following steps should be taken to transport plain glass slides with tissue sections placed:
- Dry the Slide at 42°C for 3 hours and store the slide in a desiccator at room temperature for at least 12 hours (and no longer than 2 weeks).
- After drying, slides can be shipped in a slide mailer with desiccant pouches. Ensure that the slide mailer generates a tight seal.
- Include ice packs if drastic temperature changes are anticipated during transportation.
