Hey-now Histonians!
	We are going to start microwave tissue processing next year. (The Milestone manual processor RH-1 or 2 I guess)  I'd sure like to hear about any experiences you may have had, and any tips you'd care to share. I am an old dog and this sure is a new trick for me (no xylene!?!). I confess this was NOT my idea, and I worry that I'm going to end up with lots of tissues that didn't process well because the pathologist cut specimens too thick. I (mis)understand that there is no way to reprocess after microwave processing. Is that true? If so why?
