RE: [Histonet] Gloves ... a question

From:"Bartlett, Jeanine"

Cornfield cells can come from a variety of places, including the initial
slide labeling.  Also, they sometimes fall from your hair onto a slide.
Even simply picking up a previously cut slide can sometimes leave
cornfield cells.

I have never worn gloves and I have never had a pathologist complain of
skin cells on my slide either. Robyn OHSU

I once had a pathologist complain dead skin cells on  his slides when he
that I did not wear gloves when I was cutting.  Anyone else ever hear
from a pathologist?
