Slide Preparation for Courier Collection

Pre-prepared Slides

Source Pathology provide boxes for the transportation of pre-prepared specimens as the correct packaging of slides and FFPE blocks is essential to minimise the risk of breakages and potential loss during transportation. Each transport box can hold approximately 30 trays of slides and each tray can hold a maximum of 9 slides.

Wet specimens

Under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health regulations, barrels for transportation of wet specimens will be provided by Source Pathology. It is important that specimens are adequately fixed. For large resection specimens it is suggested that specimens be incised to aid fixation prior to dispatch.

Courier Collection

Source Pathology can organise daily, regular (e.g. Monday and Wednesday each week) or ad-hoc collections as required. Please advise us of your preferred collection arrangements and times through discussion with your dedicated account manager.

All collections are free of charge.

Customer Support

Source Pathology has a dedicated Customer Support team, who manages the process from sample receipt, to reporting and return.

With a National network Consultant Pathologists available to report, cases are sent to members of the consultant team according to specialism.

Our team of scientific and laboratory professionals are available to offer technical and diagnostic advice and any queries regarding logistics and delivery of results.

Electronic Delivery of Results

Our system requires a user name, password and a random number generating key fob in order to log in to your account, ensuring that reports are securely stored and can only be accessed by those set up on the system.
