Re: [Histonet] GI biosy embedding orientation

From:"renton louise mrs"

For many years the lab where i worked used to get GI biopsies on pieces of filter paper, carboard etc where they had been placed immediately after biosy and before immersion in formalin (they seemed to stick down of their own accord).We then processed them still stuck down. This was supposed to assist with orientation at embedding as they were initially placed mucosa up, and could thus be rotated as needed. I have always wondered if this is/done anywhere else.

Subject: [Histonet] GI biosy embedding orientation

Our lab processes many small gi bxs on a daily basis.  Our pathologists have
been complaining about 

Incorrect orientation.  We try to orient the specimens correctly but it
seems to be hit or miss.

Does anyone have suggestions or experience similar problems ???
