Can someone share their breast tissue processing protocol with me.  We are
currently fixing the breast overnight  in rapid fixx solution and putting it
into acetone the next day,and then it is processed overnight. The slides
usually come out the third day.  The pathologist want a faster turnaround
time.  The sections uusually come out good.  It also depends on how thick
the residents make the sections.  I don't use alcoholic formalin on my
processor.  Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
