RE: SPAM-LOW: RE: [Histonet] Marking inks

From:"Douglas D Deltour"


This is done to identify the biopsies location/site (by different color of
ink) when multiple pieces are placed in one cassette. This is done instead
of placing each biopsy in a separate cassette (I.E. First cassette would be
A and B, second cassette would be C and D, and so on). Instead of embedding
and cutting 16 cassettes, you would be embedding and cutting 8.

Why are you putting marking inks on prostate bx's. I just have to ask!

Has anyone ever experienced any of the colors or brands of marking inks
drying out the needle biopsies?  We are experiencing prostate needle
bx's that, at times, are dryer than other processing times and a tech
questioned me if possibly the marking ink could be contributing to this
problem.  Any thoughts, please!!
