RE: Burned tissue update question

From:Cynthia Favara

My inclination would be to shorten up on the time in the 100% alcohol.
Good luck

I think I may have a problem with the reagent alcohol. This is my new processing schedule. Any suggestions would be welcome:
NBF 2 hrs
70% 15 min
80% 30 min
95% 30 min
100% 45 min X3
Histosolve for 40 min X3
Paraffin for 30, 40, 40, then sit until embedded in the 4th change

I use reagent alcohol rather than Ethanol because of the taxes. Even though I work in a hospital, the Path dept. is a private entity, so cannot quickly get a tax free aproval.
