RE: Papers for endometrial curettings

From:Walzer Susan

The paper needs to be wet. (preferrably with formalin) Another way to be
sure bloody tissue does not stick to the paper is to fix it first, at least
for a few minutes in formalin. We use Obex round papers for everything.

Subject: Papers for endometrial curettings

When we are grossing endometrial curettings we have been using a tissue
paper to wrap the specimens and then place in a cassette.
Now everything sticks to the paper which is a real pain when at the
embedding center. The tissue paper we use is also used for hair
permanents. Does anybody have any ideas that work great?
