TAT is not the reason we are so into microwave processing, but rather to
make our lab more of a LEAN process. By not having everything come off
of the processor in the AM, we have "batches" we do throughout the day.
We have 2 processors that run a routine overnight run. While those are
being embedded and cut, we have a short run of derms going and several
microwave runs of cell blocks, GI and other small bx.s. The timing is
such that when the techs are done with the overnight run, the other runs
are ready to be embedded and/or cut! The flow is so smooth and we
really enjoy working with the microwave processor!!
