Prostate biopsies/wavy sections
|From:||"Cornett, Lorraine D" |
We have been performing 34BE12's on prostate biopsies for over a year. We
have just recently started having problems with the sections falling off.
We do antigen retrieval in EDTA ph 8.0, in the microwave for 2 minutes and a
stand time of 15 minutes. The problem is somewhat inconsistent which makes
it even more confusing. Our specimens are collected in 10% NBF. We use
BioCare Medical charged slides and Surgipath Stay-On in our waterbath's.
Has anyone experienced this problem, and been able to determine the cause?
All suggestions will be considered and appreciated!
