  • How should you send them?
    Fresh tissues and carcasses should be sent on ice or with ice-blocks; fixed tissues should be sent in 10% buffered formalin (available on request).

    NB NEVER FREEZE CARCASSES OR TISSUES if histopathological examination is required.
     
  • What is the best way to send samples?

    1) For samples to be sent on Mon-Thursday, use the same day service offered by the Postal Service, but deliver it to me c/o Pathology Section, Faculty of Veterinary Science, P/Bag X04, 1 Soutpan Rd, Onderstepoort 0110

    2) for urgent samples, or samples that must be delivered over the weekend (to avoid them sitting out of the fridge over the weekend): contact MedEx: Renee Usher or Norman Bell or 0861 89 88 98 (24 hour line)

    3) Courier services are available within South Africa - contact me for details, download the form from this page for DuBuisson.
