Re: [Histonet] CAP question

From:"Jerry Wilson"

We word it exactly like the question. Included  in the procedure manual and
on the daily temp. chart there is a statement that goes something like: "To
avoid cross contamination of sections, the water bath is wiped clean with
Kim-wipes between each section."
Hope this helps
