Do you use screen cassettes? If so, do you make sure they are submerged,
or do you have them loose in your tissue processor chamber?

I don't know if anybody else has noticed this or has become alarmed by
it, but the screen cassettes trap solution and usually have at least one
trapped air bubble in there. It's theoretically possible one of your
biopsies are sitting up in the air bubble and not getting solution.
