Ok, first of all, I mis-typed--they are loaded Saturday afternoon, not Friday. So the tissue may sit in paraffin for 2-4 extra hours.

We have staff in on Sunday afternoon, so we start them Friday night and 
let them sit in paraffin until the techs come in on Sunday. The extra 
paraffin has actually cut down the number of dry outs we were having.

We come in and process them !

Hi All,

We are trying to figure out how to adjust our processing schedule for
breast core bxs on the weekends so that they are not sitting
in formalin for too long.  Just wondering what everyone else is doing.
Your input would be very helpful.  Thanks!
