RE: [Histonet] Long and short biopsy runs with one processor

From:"Charles Scouten"

We offer a processor able to simultaneously process two runs, so you can be doing the long run while ripping through several short runs.  It is a dip and dunk system, like a stainer, but has thorough vapor emission control.  This style has less carryover and mixing than a single tank systems, and lets more than one run be processing at any one time.

Subject: [Histonet] Long and short biopsy runs with one processor

We are a community hospital and last year processed 28,000 blocks.  We are being challenged by our Laboratory Director to run a long and short, biopsy run daily, M-F.  Currently we run everything together.  We have one processor, a VIP5.  I'd love to hear of ways people have handled this.  Thanks so much!  I always get such good advice from this group!
