The tumor can be tranported in: Hanks Balanced Salt Solution, RPMI media, or sterile saline. Please do not use formalin. Specify the site of origin of the tumor and the type suspected. Keep the specimen cool but do not freeze. Before shipping, write the patient's name on the container the specimen is to be transported in. When completing the Genetics lab requisition form, please include a reason for study.
