We use a fair amount of the biopsy bags and one can purchase them for
half the price that was quoted in the last histo-net. We purchase ours
from Thermo Fisher and still get them for $205.64 for 1000 bags. We do
not use the blue sponges due to the fact that we noticed reagent
carryover in our processor which compromised our quality of tissue
processing. Also, we have found that if one does not make certain the
mesh cassettes are "submerged" in formalin a piece of tissue may stick
to the top of the cassette or in a corner and not get proper processing.
That is why for now we have been utilizing the nylon bags and fine them
easy and efficient to use.
