The current wording in section 10.1.1 would not seem to allow technicians to use their hands to support the bottom of the specimen when it needs to be relocated prior to initial storage, as it requires use of a trowel or similar device. The proposed revision would allow the technicians to use other methods, including using their hands, to support the bottom of the specimen. Additional details concerning the relocation provisions are also needed.
