RE: [Histonet] Paraffin in cassette holding chamber?

From:"Molinari, Betsy"

I do not put any extra paraffin into the holding chamber. If I am not
going to embed right away I take the cassettes out of the processor and
let them cool off with the paraffin hardening around it. I have not had
any complaints with tissue handled in this way.

I want to get an idea of who is (and who is not, and why) adding
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.
