Hello everyone I have a real problem here, We have just accquired a tissue proccesor (VIP 5) and found out the hard way like everything in Histology, there is a problem with the proccessing.  Our pathologist are claiming that the small biopsies are coming out cooked,  after reviewing the slide myself with the pathologist it is not a cooked looked but rather a glassy look and bubbly.  Later found out that the latch of the tissue proccessor is not tight enough and is was allowing moisture in and there was a lot of condensation.  I figured out what was wrong but here is the kicker.

My Pathologist is wanting to take one of the small biopsies that was proccessed and regress the tissue and then reproccess the small biopsy by hand instead of throwing it back on the tissue proccessor.  The biopsy is about .1 mm very tiny.  I need all the help that I can get!!!!!!  So please fellow histo-netters share the knowledge with me.
