The penetration-time will be a matter of size, but the cross-linking time
won't. (Publications of Cecil Fox and Helander)
I never heard of compression because of the VIP. Has anyone other? Isn't it
again a matter of fixation?

Betreff: Re: [Histonet] Train to catch?Yes!
The 15 minute formalin station is only used for same dayers. And mostly just
for a little extra time in formalin with agitation if we don't know how long
it has already been in formalin. Often when tissue comes to us fresh we will
give it at least a half an hour. But remember these are very small needle
cores, we are talking smaller than your average prostate bx. We don't
process them on our bx VIP at the request of our pathologist due to
compression of the tissue. This happens even if we turn off the vacuum.
I have not been offended by anyones comments at all, rather enjoyed them to
be honest. It is the comments by everyone that gives me the insight to look
at what we do and how we do it with a different point of view. This is
exactly what I am looking for when I post a question to the histonet. You
are all wonderful and a great asset when trying to figure something out or
looking for a new protocol.
Thank You, Thank You,
