[Histonet] HPV testing - hot/cold water

From:"Kapoor, Sue"

Hello histonet, 
I just found out that a pathologist can not run HPV testing unless the
physician specifically requests it....can anyone tell why???

Also, I have a pathologist and a tech that use warm to hot water for the
rinse steps when H&E staining a frozen section slide. I've always used cold
water, I'm worried warm/hot water might encourage tissue to float off the
slide. What does everyone else do?
