Re: Breast fixation
In response to Steve Slap's questions....
It is true, that the Milestone Systems use proprietary chemicals in
conjunction with their systems which greatly facilitate the processing of
lipids. The systems also have some special features like pressure/vacuum dome
which assist in this regard.
As for the specific physics and chemistry, I am the first to admit that I am
neither a chemist or a physicist. I am a provider of tools to the
histopathology market, with the burning ambition to provide hardware and
software which will facilitate and improve laboratory procedures to benefit
both the users of these tools and ultimately the patients who depend on them
for accurate, prompt results.
What I can tell you is, that the people who have developed the Milestone
systems do have their Ph.D's in Physics and chemistry, and are quite frankly
brilliant. I have had the opportunity to spend some time with them and can
assure you that their conviction to produce and develop state-of-the-art
systems for the laboratory is second to none (in my experience). I am sure
they can explain the mechanics to anyone who cares to know, but again, I am
the first to admit, personally I am quite lost after some initial
introduction, as my background is not (as already mentioned) in physics and
chemistry. I think it is too much to expect of any histotech to have a degree
and broad understanding of these subjects. I am not entirely sure that
physics and chemistry should be their primary concern. What they should
expect is product that is easy for them to use and produces expected,
For anyone wishing to enter a scientific discussion as to the how's and
why's, and is qualified to do so, I would be pleased to make the proper
introductions so all and any questions can be answered on a scientific basis.
Many thanks for your interest.
