Re: [Histonet] Processing debate

We put the cassettes in order in the baskets right away. I think the most important thing
is that the formalin be clean and of significant volume so that it is not diluted by tissues
in the cassettes, especially if many contain large sections of fresh tissues. An occasional shake of the basket will probably do the same as the random toss in the bucket. The same
goes for fixing large bloody specimens. A change of fresh formalin after the specimen has been in fixative for a few hours will improve fixation.
