GI Biopsies


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.
