*Tissue should be cut into small fragments to preserve viability.
Low cellularity samples (ex. CSF, BAL) require more sample volume and may only have a limited number of markers tested.  Fees will be adjusted accordingly depending on the number of markers analyzed.  All samples should be kept at ambient temperature after collection and during transport.  Lymph nodes and other tissues should be cut into small fragments and submitted in RPMI.  Live cells are required for testing, therefore formalin or other fixatives are not acceptable.  Every attempt will be made to accomodate irreplaceable specimens and viability is determined for all but the most scant of specimens.
