I tried to search the archives, but couldn't come up with it....
Here's the question: We seem to be having some problems with smudged
cassettes after processing. We use the Surgipath cassette printer and ribbon.
Even recently, the grossing folks said the printer ribbon was brand new and we
still ended up with some cassettes that completely smudged. We instruct the
people who load the traditional VIP processors to not touch the numbered part
of the cassettes as they load them or embedders during the embedding
process. Still we get some cassettes that smudge almost unreadable. Somewhere along
the way, I once heard that fatty breast tissue will cause smudging during
processing. Is this a possibility? If so, how do we correct any of these
