tissue for HT/HTL exams (PROCESSING GI)
Peggy Wenk just described the conditions under which her HT/HTL students have
to obtain tissue for their exams, from tissue fragments in the process of
being discarded after a month's storage.
Peggy, your pathologists owe them better than that. Who do they think is
going to make their slides for them in the next generation? It takes little
time to cut some duplicate blocks from a normal uterus or spleen or what have
you, when they're grossing tissue. (Since the duplicate blocks would be held
for overnight fixation anyhow, they could be immediately reclaimed in the
very unlikely event they were needed for diagnostic purposes.)
I've certainly prepared tissue with students who needed it, and I think it's
time well spent.
