Re: HT Practical question

From:Gayle Callis

In my estimation, yes.  They should sit in at grossing when this is done to
insure any size requirements are met and obtain optimal fixation. It never
hurts to learn how to cut in your own tissues.  Hmmmm they might have to do
that someday.  Processing with other tissues in the lab's scheduled run is
fine, but they must embed their own tissues. I also think this goes for
making up any staining solutions from scratch.  

This is all part of the learning experience and they are on their honor to
do all parts of the exam.
