RE: SPAM-LOW: [Histonet] Slide quality

From:"Douglas D Deltour"


I would defiantly check to see if the wrinkles are generated by one
particular person. My techs initial the slides that they cut. This is the
easiest way to see if things of this nature are a trend.

Subject: SPAM-LOW: [Histonet] Slide quality

Recently we started monitoring slide quality in the histology
department.  We have noticed a trend of folds/wrinkles.  I have changed
paraffins from  Surgipath Blue Ribbon to Fisher's Paraplast X-tra and it
does not seem to have made a difference.  I have tired using Halt which
didn't make a difference either.  Most of our specimens are GI biopsies,
curettings, skins and breast biopsies.  Any other suggestions?  Thanks
for the help.
