If your willing to share - how are people monitoring the temperature of
paraffin baths on tissue processors?  Are you using additional
thermometers directly into the paraffin baths, or just going by the
digital read out on the display for the (oven on a VIP) instrument?
Just curious how everyone is dealing with this particular item.  Thanks
in advance for the many responses and ideas I know I will get from
asking this question!
