we perform almost 80 derm cases per day. We use blue sponges and not lens
paper. The blue sponges make embedding so much faster. Often, the lens paper
sticks together and makes it a nightmare to embed. Leaving any type of
tissue on the counter is borderline malpractice. Not only does the tissue
dry out, making processing and cutting difficult, it reeks havoc with
immunohistochemistry. You make get no staining, weak staining or so much
background staining you won't be able to read the slides.
Where are you working? Nothing against you, but I want to make sure none of
my family and friends are close by and pathology
