From:"Favara, Cynthia (NIH/NIAID)"

I have seen this myself. I think most pathologists are skilled at tuning out
such things. I wear glove for this reason as well as many others.

I once had a pathologist complain dead skin cells on  his slides when he saw

that I did not wear gloves when I was cutting.  Anyone else ever hear this 
from a pathologist?
