Subject: [Histonet] temperature range of tissue floatation baths

Recently we were cited for not measuring the temperature of our water
baths (tissue floatation baths).  We use Richard Allan Type 9 paraffin.
I am trying to put down a range of acceptable temperatures for our daily
quality control.  Any ideas?
