Intact frozen heads may be submitted (a $15 fee will be charged for CWD sample collection). If frozen samples are collected by the submitter prior to shipping, minimize the risk of artifact by 1. Ensuring that the tissues are completely thawed before being placed in formalin and 2. Avoiding freezing once in formalin.
