The concept of over-processed tissue crops up regularly.
Is there general agreement:

a/	That over-processed biopsies exist
b/	That they show some characteristic(s) by which they can be regularly recognised
c/	That the cycle or some part thereof needs to be reduced in time to correct the features seen in an affirmative answer 	to b/?

I am a Lab Manager, not a Histotech, and I need your help. We are a general pathology practice and need to know what kind of processing cycles others use for small bx's.  Currently our lab processes all tissues together, large and small, and therefore has much trouble with over processed bx's.  
I would very much appreciate your guidance so that I can help our histology area move forward.
Thanks so much!
