RE; Reprocessing of tissue.
 We reprocess tissue, I wouldn't say all the time, but if it needs it
we do it. It is normally fatty breast tissue. This happens more often
when our pathology assistant is off and one of the pathologists is
grossing. We run it through the cleaning cycle on the VIP, then place it
in the rack with formalin with the rest of the blocks to be processed
that day. It has always worked for us and it cuts like butter. You get
beautiful sections that the pathologists can make a diagnosis from. It's
better all the way around, especially for the patient.
