[Histonet] Biopsy processing schedule

From:"Lorraine Cornett"

Could someone please share with me your processing protocol for your biopsy 

We have been using Zinc Formalin on our processors, we were noticing a lot 
of "crunchy" colon polyps, etc.  We tried going back to 10% NBF, but the 
Dr.'s prefer the nuclear detail that Zinc Formalin provides, especially when 
the 10% NBF did not make a noticeable difference in the "crunchiness".

Does anyone have an idea to use 10% NBF and Zinc Formalin on the processor, 
knowing that somehow the cassettes will need to be rinsed before the Zinc 

All ideas and thoughts are appreciated.
