RE: Papers for endometrial curettings
Try "S/P Lens Paper" (catalog # P1055 from Allegiance), cut into 4 equal
rectangles and a dropper bottle containing a solution of concentrated
alcoholic Eosin for all your small biopsy specimens. I have a couple of
additional tricks with this lens paper that help at the grossing station and
especially at the embedding center to those interested.

The trouble we had with the sponges is that we recieved bone marrows and
curettings from other places and with turnover of techs we cannot get it
through to them that sponges MUST be wet so we end up with nothing but
foam when we try to scrap the sponges. YUK!

We use the blue sponges. Make sure they are soaked well with water or
formalin, place them in the cassette and pour material through and the
curettings stay put very nicely. Works great at the embedding center,
usually peel off the sponges in one peice and you can see them nicely
the blue background!@!!

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?
