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

From:"Inman, Anna"

What I recall about that doesn't really address
microwave usage for anything other than a specimen processing angle;
whereas, labs like mine only use it for heating agar/histogel to make
cell blocks and things......=2E.

There is a CLSI (formerly NCCLS) Standard and Guideline book available:
=0DMicrowave 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,=0D

Does anyone know where I can find recommendations for

temperature reproducibility for microwaves, I only use the microwave for

certain special stains currently.
