Lymphatic System Tissue

  • LNM - Lymph Nodes: Mesenteric lymph nodes (30 count per group) or specified single lymph nodes throughout the body as specified.
  • SP - Spleen: This is the spleen without any vascular attachments.
  • SPCCVB - Spleen with both Cranial and Caudal Bundles: This includes the spleen with the cranial and caudal bundles attached, which are comprised of the artery, vein, and nerve bundle within the myelin sheath.
  • SVB - Splenic Vascular Bundle: Choose the cranial or caudal vascular bundle.  Each bundle includes the splenic artery and vein and nerve within the myelin sheath.
  • SPCRA - Splenic Cranial Artery: This artery is approximately 3” in length with an inner round lumen measurement of 2 mm.  This artery is skeletonized.
  • SPCRA - Spleen with Cranial Artery: The spleen with the cranial artery attached.  This artery measures 3” in length and has an inner round lumen measurement of 2 mm.  The artery is skeletonized.
  • SPCRV - Spleen with Cranial Vein: The spleen with the cranial vein attached.  This vein measures 3” in length and has an inner flat lumen measurement of 1 mm.  The vein is skeletonized.
  • SPCUA - Splenic Caudal Artery: The spleen with the caudal splenic artery attached.  The artery measures 3” in length and has an inner round lumen measurement of 2 mm.
  • SPCUV - Splenic Caudal Vein: The spleen with the caudal splenic vein attached.  The vein measures 3” in length and has an inner flat lumen measurement of 1 mm.
  • SPLVGBST - Spleen, Liver, Gall Bladder, Stomach Tissue Block: This tissue block is comprised of the spleen, cranial and caudal vascular bundles, liver with gall bladder and bile, and the stomach with omentum. The contents are rinsed out with water through the sphincters, or through an incision on the lesser curvature of the stomach which must be specified when ordered.
  • SPCVVB - Spleen with Caudal Vascular Bundle: The spleen with the caudal vascular bundle attached which includes the caudal splenic artery, vein, and nerve within the myelin sheath.
  • TLD - Thoracic Lymphatic Duct: This vessel is harvested at a length of 5” and has an inner lumen round diameter of 1 mm.
