There was talk today about the different biopsy cassettes that are on the
market.  Have any of the users had any problems with processing problems
related to them -- such as having trapped reagent begin carried over to the
next processing step?
Using 2 different types biopsy cassettes we've had several cases where
several biopsies out of 50 appear not to be infiltrated - looking like those
unfixed breast cases where they over-stuff the cassettes.
