Turn around time Special Stains

From:Teresa Flores

I need to pick your brains to imput the correct information on a posting
for the internet that my pathologist is working on.
And, I know that we are all getting ready for the Holidays, so I will
repost this after also, but if you have some time, please help.
What is the turn around time of a renal biopsy in your lab? From the minute
your lab receives the biopsy to the minute you give the H&E slides, special
stains included (PAS, Silver and Trichrome), to your pathologist.
As most of you know, I work in an EM lab and upon receiving a renal biopsy
our turn around time is 3 hours. That includes a 2 hour processing, 10
minutes for polymerization in the microwave and then sectioning, staining,
coverslipping and handing the HRLM slide to the pathologist.
I will post the results. Many thanks to all. Teresa
