Hi all,
  I use the SurgiPath infiltration paraffin and the embedding paraffin in my lab....I've noticed a lot of "grit" in my paraffin chamber (embedding station) as well as the stations on the tx processor.  It's not lot# specific....I'm changing all paraffin stations on the processor every Friday as well as emptying out the embedding chamber (cleaning with xylene and 100% alcohol, as well as the filter) and by Monday, the grit is there again. Anyone out there having the same problem???Any help would be appreciated...
