RE: [Histonet] Paraffin in cassette holding chamber?

From:"Bonnie Whitaker"

If it's going to be a really long time (or even to hold extra tissue,
unembedded for a great length of time) just pull the cassettes out and then
put them back in to heat up right before embedding.

We do not add paraffin to our holding chamber.   But they do not sit
there very long, as we start embedding right away.   Is there a reason
you want them to sit for a time before embedding?

I want to get an idea of who is (and who is not, and why) adding paraffin to
the cassette holding chamber of the embedding center.  Once processed-How
long are tissues ok to sit without paraffin on them?

All thoughts, opinions, experience is appreciated...Thanks.
