Hi ,

We work with fish tissues, mainly Salmonids.  Our pathologist has asked if
we can reduce the overnight processing to 16 hours from 21 hours, thus,
enabling him to announce urgent samples late afternoon!!

 We use a series of Industrial Methylated spirit, Ethanol, Chloroform then
Paraffin.  Our tissue samples can be quite large (up to 3cmx1cm), normally
they are below 5mmx5mm.

Any ideas or comments will be gratefully received.
