Shipping Formalin Fixed Tissues in Winter

As long as there is a risk of formalin fixed tissues freezing in transit, please send samples in INSULATED containers.  Please consider adding alcohol  (isopropyl, methanol, or ethanol) at a ratio of 1 part alcohol to 9 parts formalin, as this will depress the freezing point of the formalin solution.  Tumors can be especially difficult to read when the tissue freezes, as tissues are shrunk, and cytological features are lost.
