Re: [Histonet] Chatter

From:"Joe Nocito"

I had a pathologist like that. They can't find him now. I shot him.
Seriously, we had the same issues. We put a little 1% ammonium hydroxide on 
top of the ice tray with some water. Not too much, don't want to be overcome 
by fumes. This seemed to work.
    We do levels on our GI bxs and I can tell we people don't soak the block 
enough, the third level has chatter. So I shoot them.
    I have a couple of openings now. Anyone want to apply?
Gee, I love Fridays!!!!
