I have not seen the guideline, but we have a block etcher that holds 3 lines
(max)of print. We get all sorts of info on there.

Ok, Histonetters, got another burning question for you.  I have heard
that there is a new CAP guideline that states that there needs to be two
patient identifiers on the tissue block.  We have a block printer and we
all know that there is very limited space on the block for much info, so
if we need to have two patient identifiers things will get very tight.
For those of you who have block printers, how are you handling this?
All info and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
