We were having the same problem with chatter on GI Biopsies.
We tried various ways of soaking the blocks while sectioning but this did not
solve our problem. We have dedicated a VIP processor for GI BXs with a much
shorter cycle. The longer times in alcohol and warm paraffin tend to dry out
these specimens causing the chatter upon sectioning.
