Sampling for a biopsy

Use a pot containing diluted formalin, provided by the laboratory.

  • Place the biopsy into the formalin. The volume of liquid must be at least three times larger than the volume of tissue for fixation.
  • The biopsy samples must be placed in the formalin as quickly as possible.
  • The deadline for sending it to the laboratory is not very important as long as the sample is placed in the formalin.
