Re: [Histonet] levels on biopsies

From:"Becky and Travis Barnhart"

The majority of our cases are biopsies.  We cut 2 levels for each.  On each
slide, depending on the size of the tissue, we put 2 rows of sections.  For
little specimens (colon polyps/bx, some cores, etc) we can usually get 8
sections on 1 slide.

Subject: [Histonet] levels on biopsies

We have a lot of biopsy samples.    We have always cut 3 levels.   But,
in an effort to save time and money (supplies), I would like to cut 2
levels.    What I want to know is how many levels everyone cuts on their
biopsies?    Does anyone just cut 2 levels?
