[Histonet] Mortuary

From:"Kemlo Rogerson"

If descriptions of organs and weights etc are dictated to a MTO and
recorded on a proforma, can that proforma be taken out of the Mortuary
for the details to be typed up in the report? Given that the 'greens'
worn in the Autopsy Suite have to be removed after use, then 'outdoor'
cloths put on, can anything safely be removed? 

Even wider than that; what about forms that accompanies biopsy and
resection specimens? They have been in the Theatre, then in cut up, then
into an Office environment. Is paper bactericidal? Which infections must
we be wary of and what is 'best practice'?

In my day I remember a Pathologist that used to perch her cigarette on
the cadaver. That broke every rule in the book; H&S, passive smoking,

Subject: [Histonet] pepsin

Dear histoneters,
we used to use Pepsin (porcine) from Serva:1 milliAnson U/mg, EC 3.4 23
Mr ca. 36 000 which is no more available, is someone familiar with this
activity unit for pepsin?, what kind of pepsin can we use instead?
treatment with pepsin is a part of FNAB sample processing procedure for
DNA measurements by flow cytometer.  

thanks for help
