You made our day!

One of our Auckland pathologists was recently trimming tissue from histology cases and came across this spleen. On the submission form the veterinarian had commented “apologies about packaging” but actually, it was exceptionally well packaged!

It was encased in two sturdy plastic containers with lids that clipped down when pressed, cotton wool (not shown), adequate formalin and they had bread-loafed the splenic mass too, so it had fixed properly in formalin.

It made a pathologists’ heart sing!

So BIG thanks to everyone who goes the extra mile and ensures their samples get the love and care they deserve.  It really does make a big difference for us.
