Are you running Her2 on those breast cases? If so then please read the

Subject: SPAM-LOW: [Histonet] Processing fatty breast tissue and fatty derm


Hello everyone,

We are trying to improve on our processing of fat. We are currently
using pen-fix fixation on our breast tissue. When we put it on the
processor we are putting it through a formalin station and a pen-fix
station. This works well most of the time. We may at times run large
fatty derm tissues through along with the breasts. Is there a good way
to process both at the same time?
