RE: Recycling

From:Bruce Gapinski

I'm loving my BR still. I've had it 2-3 years. It took me 9 years to talk my Pathologists into getting one! It's paid for itself already. I use it for xylene only. I think the best you can do with alcohol is 95% (5% water), and we don't use that much 95% alcohol. I love it. BR is a great company w/ great support.
    Messy? - No more than decanting into a 55 gallon waste drum, that gets burned for us all to breathe.
    Where used? - everywhere. Processing, staining. etc.
    Processors - 2 VIP 3000
    How many slides do we check? - 100%  Believe me our Pathologists would let us know in a minute if they didn't like what they saw.

Thanks to all for helping with drying times and job rotation.  Here are other issues we would like the communities help with.  For those who recycle alcohol and xylene:  Have you found it to be cost effective?   How dirty a job is it?  Where do you use the recycled product?  How many tissue processors does your lab have?
For QC on H&E slides how many slides do you check?  We heard a figure of 40% of the slides.
Thank you all
