improved GI biopsy sections

A special thank you to Bill Barlow, if he is not on the histonet and someone knows him  please thank him from my staff for an article he submitted in
the Journal of Histotechnology on 'Techniques for Better Paraffin Sections.' (Vol 16, No 4, Dec 1993)  Basically, Bill used a surfactant  to soak
paraffin blocks with to improve sections, eliminating microchatter.    It has made a significant difference in the quality of routine biopsy
specimens, especially those adenomatous GI polyps, which are so difficult to section without  microchatter.

Thanks, Bill from the histotechs and  pathologists here at the base of Pike's Peak, CO
