RE: [Histonet] Microwave procedure for monitoring temperature rep roducibility


There is a CLSI (formerly NCCLS) Standard and Guideline book available:
Microwave Device Use in the Histology Laboratory; Approved Guidelines.
(description: This document provides recommendations for reproducing the
performance of microwave-accelereated procedures to prepare biological
specimens in the histology laboratory).
Go to the CLSI website for info:

I found this very helpful in fulfilling the new CAP requirements.

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know where I can find recommendations for checking\monitoring
temperature reproducibility for microwaves, I only use the microwave for
certain special stains currently.
