Re: [Histonet] changing processor reagents

From:Rene J Buesa

Using "runs" as a criteria is not very objective. Use the number of cassettes. I always rotated some reagents/discarded the oldest, every time the TP capacity was reached.

I would like to know what criteria people are using to determine when to
change or rotate reagents on their tissue processors. Is there a
certain # of cassettes processed, or # of processing runs, or other
criteria? Do you take into consideration the type of tissue processed? 

We are using a Thermo-Shandon Excelsior, and find that the reagent
quality monitor is not a reliable tool for assessing reagent quality and
are looking to establish some new guidelines for reagent rotation.

Any advice is appreciated.
