We cut three levels about 100 microns apart, picking up two sections on each
level on all GI biopsies.  All three levels are stained H&E and a spare
section kept for special stains.  A third slide from the middle level of all
upper GI biopsies is stained Alcian Blue-PAS.  If there is clinical history
or suspicion of Helicobacter pylori, a modified Giemsa is also done on an
extra slide taken from the middle level from biopsies of gastric / pyloric /

	Dear Histonet
	   Because of a recent article in "Human Pathology, July 1999" "The
	Side of the Gastric Biopsy" has caused our Pathologist to

	advance for your input
