There is a superb publication "A report from the National Society for
Histotechnology Productiviey Task Force", LaFreiniere M, Sheppard B and
Carson F. 27(4):293-295 J Histotechnology Dec 2004. It will answer a lot
of your questions, including times to section blocks etc.
If you have an NSH member or are a member yourself, you will have journal
in hand. If not, you can obtain an electronic copy from NSH, just email
them at histo <@t> nsh.org and request this special report by title, issue.
