Re: Papers for endometrial curettings

From:Gayle Callis

An old trick we use to keep fresh tissues from sticking is wet the papers
with fixative BEFORE putting currettings or tissues in contact with paper.
Also kept a flat metal weighing spatula to gently scrape (be careful not to
get paper fibers) currettings off paper which should be sitting on the hot
surface of embedding center.  If cooled, will not release tissues.
