From:anita dudley

to all!!!  thanks so much for your responses to my question about outdated reagents,  that helped me, cause I think it is such a waste for throw everything out, I am going to show them to my director. amy,  our cytolotist go to the FNA's and they label everything at the bedside. the path only goes when the cytotech has all the slides ready for them to look at.  that is all written in the cyto dept procedure for FNA.  hope this helps, anything else just ask.   thanks again all,  have a good weekend,  anita> Subject: RE: [Histonet] out dated reagents> Date: Tue, 7 Oct 2008 15:38:48 -0400> From:> To:> > Anita,> Our inspection is any day now and I have cone across a checklist> question that has stumbled me.
