Re: [Histonet] Average cutting of blocks

From:"Robyn Vazquez"

I am not a lab manager or supervisor, but I can tell you from
experience as a technician.  I could probably do 150 myself or more
depending on the tissue.

Hello everyone:
This is a question for lab managers and supervisors
I would like to know what would be an average number of blocks that a
Histotechnician can handle on a 7 hour working day; from embedding to
coverslipping (only coverslipping is done on machine) Has anyone done a
study on this?
I should say that my lab works mostly with animal tissue of which, 50%
is complete mice necropsies (i.e. small pieces of tissue -sometimes up
to 6 organs in one cassette), the rest is usually only one piece of
tissue per cassette. One H&E/cassette
I would appreciate any input on this.
Thanks in advance
