My personal experience is that if the sample is badly oriented in the
agar, you have no recourse to fix it.
I don't like using agar. A former lab used it for endocervical
currettings, but the currettings were suspended in the agar - no way to
get to them unless you serial sectioned the whole lump of agar. Leave the
orientation to the histotechs.

I have a new pathology assistant that want's to sue some agar to help
orient her small specimens so that the orientation is done at the
grossing station and not the embedding center. Does anybody have
experience with this and if you do can you send me a sample procedure.
