Canadian Cancer Trials Group Bulletins


Shipment of Specimens

All centres participating in Canadian Cancer Trials Group clinical trials where fluids (blood, serum, plasma, cellular component, circulating tumour cells, sputum, and urine) and tissues (tumour blocks, slides, FNAs) are collected and banked at the Canadian Cancer Trials Group Tumour Bank SHOULD NOT ship any specimens between December 17, 2009 and January 3, 2010 inclusive as our Central Office and Tumour Bank will be closed for the holidays. Please store specimens at the appropriate temperatures until you can resume your regular shipping schedule on January 4, 2010.
