In brief: Pathology

Typically the specimens are sent to a pathologist, a doctor, who looks at them under a microscope and confirms the type of tissue they are.
When pathologic examination is complete, the products of conception (embryo) and tube are incinerated. This is the case for placentas at birth and a variety of other biological tissues. Incineration is safe and destroys any disease as well. Hope that helps.

In brief: Abnormal Location

Ectopic pregnacies involve abnormal implantation of the embryo in the fallopian tube instead of the uterus.
After the removal or simple opening of the tube the embryo usually does not survive. The tube is not a proper location for the embryo to develop and grow in the first place.

In brief: Surg Path

All surgical specimens are sent to surgical pathology for gross and microscopic description of the specimen.
The pathology term is sometimes poc, or products of conception.
