Spectrum Health is currently experiencing challenges obtaining formalin containers. Spectrum Health Supply Chain Services is working with additional vendors for a replacement. Orders for formalin containers will be limited until supplies are stable.
To reduce waste please be sure to do the following:
• Only place supply orders for what you will need immediately
• Ensure container has been labeled appropriately with the patient’s full legal name and date of birth
• Check that container lid is fitted properly to avoid fluid leakage
• Ensure that the container size allows the specimen to be completely covered in formalin to ensure good fixation
Thank you for your continued patience. Questions may be directed to the “contact us” link above
