Some of our prostate core biopsies are dried out to tthe poin that they resemble beef jerky under the micrscope. We have not been able to spot a trend. The biopsies involved come from various doctor's offices; all are received in formalin, some on on paper some are not (no difference); they are put back into formalin immediately after grossing; are run on different Tissue Tek VIP processors (temp logs withnin range); and are embedded first to reduce time in hot parrafin. We are still having problems. Anyone have any ideas?
