Re: Use of quick freeze spray during frozen sectioning

From:Vicki Gauch

 We stopped using the quick freeze spray several years ago when the question of aerosolization of frozen section cases that were TB positive,etc. arose .  There was a bit of moaning and groaning in the beginning but for the most part, it has all worked out fine and we have no problems with cutting the frozens since we started using the Histobath II to freeze the tissues.

We are trying to eliminate the use of this product during FS and of
course I'm getting a lot of opposition from the residents.  

What are other labs doing?
