Re: [Histonet] Can you believe it

I can believe it!

I have heard of the tissue disentergrating in decal(CAL-RITE) with heat. 
The stirrer was on and someone hit the heat knob and this was on a Friday. 
Well, on Monday there was no tissue, the cassette was chewed but it was 
there. Now we have tape across the heat knobs on all stirrer plates.

[Histonet] Can you believe it

Has anyone ever heard of cassettes and tissue totally disintegrating in
formic acid decal solution with a high heat on the solution for about 3
hours?????  We had 3 cassettes with tissue for decal placed in our
container on the platform for adding agitation.  Someone had moved the
knob to heat and this wasn't noticed until about 2-3 hours later, when
it was boiling!  We cannot locate the cassettes (I think someone
misplaced them) and others think they totally disintegrated with the
decal and heat...what does everyone think?????  In all of my years of
histology, never have I heard of anything so weird ......
