We use Tamtron Powerpath 2000 for anatomic pathology.  This system allows
the choice of autoaccessioning, or manual accessioning.  There is switch in
the system that will allow the user to determine how they want to accession.
Powerpath is a windows based system, and is working well in our lab.
Contact them if you have additional questions.  Their number is (408)

	Fellow AP Histonetters,

	Our lab is shopping for a new computer system, and they all have a
	that could turn our accessioning system upside down.  With the
system we 
	have now, we apply an accession number to the case with a preprinted

	computer generated sticker.  (I print 4,000 at a time.) In this way,
we can 
	gross in over 60 cases first thing in the morning, and the medical 
	secretaries do order entry in the computer whenever they have time.
	the new computer systems, the case has to be entered before you can
	assigned an accession number and do gross.  This will really slow us
	especially since the medical secretaries think that now we will be
doing the 
	order entry.  So now I have to think outside the box.  How do other
	do it that have heavy work loads and a computer system like the one
I will
