reprocessing small gi bx

From:"Jennings-Siena, Debbie" <>

Hi everyone,
I have an emergency, we have several G.I. bx's that were on an old style
Open processor and they went past the paraffin into the formaliin.  Our
experience is that they are extremely terrible, they don't cut, the nuclear
detail is terrible.  We put them back into the paraffin, but in the past we
have tried reprocessing, nothing, conventional seems to help.  Does anyone
have a procedure that is tried and work well in this type of situation?
