Re: Multiple site prostate biopsies

We receive up to 8 different containers each containing 1-3 bx's from each 
quadrant and 2 from the periphery. They are processed and sectioned in 
separate cassettes and 7 slides are cut from each block. Slide 1, 4, and 7 
are stained H&E and the rest are kept for IHC if needed. It's a lot of work 
but minimizes the possibility of lost CA foci.
