RE: Placenta Update

From:Tim Webster

Hi Louri,
Yes, I do have suggestions - but none that I want to put into print. (Most
of them involve a pointy stick thing.) 
You don't have a crystal ball, you don't walk on water, and you are probably
not a magician.  You can explain the fixation, the tissue processing, er,
process, and WHY it contributes to the finished product -but you are
probably barking up the wrong tree.
Good luck, take a deep breath, and drink heavily :)

Give her exactly what she wants, she is obviously an "expert". Then she can
defend her lousy results when she shows the slides at a meeting or seminar.

Hi everyone, Thank you all for responding to my dilemma.  
Here's an update on my placental problems.  Not only does the researcher
have problems cutting the tissue smaller than 3 mm thick - she also wants it
in formalin a minimum amount of time before processing (2 to 3 hours).
I've explained that the results she'll achieve under these conditions will
be poor - but she insists.  Any other suggestions I may give to her? Louri
