Re: Tissue Processor Alarms

From:Jennifer MacDonald <>

We have been saved more times than I care to mention by the external alarm.
There is no coverage in the histo lab at night so we had the alarm sound (by
remote) in the clinical lab.  I receive a call at home by the lab staff.
Most of the times I can talk them through any problems.  On occasion I did
have to go into the lab to fix the problem, but I would rather do that than
find the "problem" Monday morning.
