RE: [BULK] - Re: [Histonet] Left-handed microtome.

From:"Stapf, Ross"

I had a resident come in looking at at a block contemplating ordering a
special stain.  She looked and looked at the top of the block where
tissue is placed when grossing.

Finally she said.  "I need to order a special on this block, but there
isn't any more tissue."

The tech took the block out of her hand and turned it over. 

"OOOHHH, there it is."

Or, perhaps the pathologist wanted sections from the opposite side of
the block.

Poor fellow... didn't know whether he was coming or going. Obviously due
to all those years of unbridled exposure to xylene &

formalin (or is that formaldehyde? ...I can never remember).
