[Histonet] Avoiding bilaterality mistakes

From:"Stephen Peters M.D."

After our recent near miss on a bilateral breast case ( see fridays post :What 
  are peoples feelings on pre labling slides?) we will be using different colored 
  cassettes and matching slides for each side. I got this idea from Joyce Weems who told me she uses colored agar markers for laterality ( Thanks Joyce). This should
  help to prevent confusion at the grossing, cutting and reading stages. Thanks to all 
  who answered my first post. I thought I would share what I hope is a good solution.
