From:"Gudrun Lang"

do you use the biopsy-sponges with this protocol? And how many cassettes do
you process at one time?

We have all stations set at 10 minutes, except for the last xylene and
the last two paraffins - which are 15 minutes each.
We actually have the two formalins at one hour and one and a half hours,
in case someone mistakenly puts the big tissue on the bx processor - at
least they will be well-fixed before we have to re-process them.  We
have plenty of time to have the formalin at longer times, but if your
specimens are already fixed, you should be able to go with the 10

Can anyone out there help me figure out what is the shortest amount of
time you can process GI biopsies with a Tissue Tek VIP?
