Quality-right first time?

From:"Coaker, Terry" <Terry.Coaker@nuth.northy.nhs.uk>

What is the most reliable, economical way of ensuring section quality
with no transcription errors or recuts?
Is it necessary to check every slide microscopically before issue?  If
staff are trained to pick up only the best sections at the water bath
and you control your staining, can you be confident in the quality and
remove microscopic checking?  Remember the pathologists provide the
final check. 
Are there other ways e.g checking all slides off against the paraffin
block or using a stereo microscope to check quality at the water bath.
