Abstract:
A tissue sample that has been removed from a subject can be evaluated. A transporter system for carrying a tissue sample includes a transport container, a fixative in the transport container, and a cooling device that reduces and/or maintains the temperature of the fixative to perform a pre-soaking process. A portable transporter system adapted to carry a tissue sample contacting a fixative, can include: a transport container including: a holding chamber; and a fixative; and a container lid including: a cassette holder operable to be coupled to the standard histology cassette and including a first seal; and a cassette receiver operable to be releasably coupled to said transport container and including a second seal, where the cassette holder and cassette receiver are operable to be attachably coupled to one another upon insertion of a standard histology cassette coupled to the cassette holder into the cassette receiver.
