RE: GI Biopsy Inking @ Gross Station
I have a squeeze bottle of dilute eosin sit by me when I gross. To insure I
get ALL the pieces of tissue out of the bottle I rinse the bottle with the
eosin. I think it's time well spent. Respectfully,

I gross over 100 cases a day and don't have the time to drop
ink or eosin on
each GI biopsy I come across. The techs put about 50ml of
waste eosin in
the first alcohol on the tissue processor. It colors all
the tissue lt pink
and aid in orientation during imbedding. It even helps with
finding the vas lumen.

What type of stain do the PA's or pathologists put on
gastric and colon
biopsies when they gross the tissue to aide the embedder the
morning? I have been using safranin for years but have now
questioning from the histo department that some nuclear
'smudgy'... can this be attributed to the safranin??
