|1||Initiation of banking project, data abstraction||hour||80.48||130.34|
Tissue banking, simple
Solid tissue that is research only. It requires no special processing or any dissecting. No scalpels are used, only a sterile pair of forceps to transfer the sample. This can be processed as formalin-fixed paraffin embedded, fresh, OCT frozen or snap frozen in liquid nitrogen.
Tissue banking, standard
Solid tissue banking that requires dissection of the specimen and delineating tumor and normal tissue grossly. This can be processed as formalin-fixed paraffin embedded, fresh, OCT frozen or snap frozen in liquid nitrogen.
Tissue banking, complex
Tissue that is banked as standard, but may require extra work such as diagrams, special orientation or placement in multiple fixatives. This can be processed as formalin-fixed paraffin embedded, fresh, OCT frozen or snap frozen in liquid nitrogen.
Bodily fluids banking, standard
Standard body fluids banking:
Processing of standard body fluids includes standard techniques to centrifuge whole blood into serum, plasma or cells. Once spun down it is stored in cryovials and stored at -80C.
Bodily fluids banking, complex
Complex body fluids banking:
Complex body fluid processing includes urgent and/or labor intensive processes requiring immediate technician attention.
