I am obtaining human breast tissue, for RNA isolation, from local hospitals.
They do not have liquid nitrogen or dry ice on site.  If the tissue can not be
picked immediately after the tissue is removed, how might the hospitals preserve
the tissue so the RNA will remain intact?  The pathologist can chill the sample
with CyroQuick(Freon-like gas) and place on ice or in -70C freezer.  Any ideas?
