TOPS (Tissue Optimization and Pre-analytic Standardization) is APPIA's first education program for your entire health care delivery team on the criticality of tissue pre-analytics. The TOPS program serves the interests of the patient's diagnostic sample by providing best practice suggestions and guidelines on tissue handling and pre-analytics for surgeons, nurses, pathologists, laboratory technologists, educators and patient advocacy groups.
The TOPS program was developed by its authors and scientific advisors to be used as presented. APPIA is not responsible if the content is changed or misinterpreted in any way.
