Re: GI biopsy blues

From:Laurie Colbert


Is your lab manager a histotech (in other words, is she talking from
experience)?  I have some techs here that insist on soaking everything,
too, and it drives me crazy.  When I sit down and cut, I do not need to
soak everything.  Of course there are some blocks that do need to be
soaked and I will soak those.  I blow on my blocks as I cut and this
seems to help.

I don't know if you have another processor that you could put the
biopsies on, but a shorter run would definitely help with the dryness of
the blocks.
