Process of Muscle biopsy
What is the procedure normally followed after obtaining a muscle biopsy speciman?  Is it normal for a speciman to set in the lab freezer for almost 4 months before being sent for genetic testing?  Is the speciman still acceptable to be sent for testing after this length of time?

We recommend that you contact the laboratory that is performing the testing. The lab should be able to tell you the proper specimen handling requirements.
