: Puzzled! 2
Hi Guys...answers to a few questions
We have a Sukura VIP 5..Brand new.Have had
it for 5 months.WE ran test blocks thru after all the problem.Test blocks
were fine.Evaluated processor after each stage.No problem.????? Rotary valve is
I'm thinking human error?? Either way.We ran the
damaged tissue thru the clean cycle.Than sent it over to a local hospital for
overnight processing.What a horror story! Small gi biopsies cut like grains of
salt!.....Prostate cut like toenails...
No clue to the puzzle here..PS the new tissue ..not
affected..didn't cut so great either! LOL..
Checked reagents..all is well..
We didn't call Sukara ..because there were not any
Still puzzled but all is well today in

Came to work this morning.Coworker embedding
said.The tissue smells like formalin and..well here you try to embed this! I
tried..it wouldn't adhere to the paraffin..just wanted to float.The tissue was
rubbery.Checked the processor.No error codes.Formalin was way above level
markers and there was formalin in the overflow container.
The overflow container should have solved the
problem..and processing continue as normal right? So why did the tissue still
smell like formalin?
2.The working day prior..was the cleaning day of
the vip.Warm waterflush was done.All reagents changed.When the processor was
started for delay,personnel noted the 70% was low..thought they might have
become distracted. So topped it off to the level mark.
1.If it was the 70 that was too full..than it
should have been the 70%alc in the overflow right?
2.If the processor backed up..cause of to high a
level,then the 2nd formalin should have been way full not the
2.If the water didn't pump all the way out after
station 3.During clean cycle...That could have caused the overflow of
formalin.But would have been taken care of at that point..overflow
4.First paraffin had a lot of fluid
SO WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON!
