Who inspects the calibrating timers? 
What are the calibrating timers calibrated against? What are the calibrating

I'm sorry
am I the only one that thinks calibrating timers is stupid. I mean how many 
histology procedures are so time sensitive that the timers have to be 
calibrated? Let's face it. I have had techs sit there and watch the clock 
and rinse as soon as the timer goes off. And I've had techs wait for the 
timer to go off , then mosey over and rinse.  Both stains worked. I guess 
I'm just not anal enough.
