Hi Jackie. I would recommend rehydrating them in normal saline
instead of water. Make certain that the samples are adequately
rehydrated before processing again.

I haven't done this in years. I came in this a.m. to find the
my processor suspended in air over the first absolute alcohol station.
Apparently, the machine, a Shandon Citadel 2000, was moved too close to
wall and stuck as it tried to rotate. I have about 100 xenografts to
rescue. Right now they all look and feel like bb's. My plan is to
rehydrate them and reprocess them, but I have my doubts as to the
of the morphology and any subsequent IHC. As I said, I haven't
a basket of tissue in years and years so I would appreciate any new
ideas on possibly saving these tumors. Thanks in advance.
