RE: Shakin' and Dippin'

From:"Dawson, Glen" <>


As with all things histology, procedures vary from lab to lab.  Each person
believes their way is the right way when, in reality, there are many "right"
ways.  My advice is to do it the way that YOU believe works best and then
swear up and down to the rest of the world that it is the only way that
really works...just like the rest of us.
