  A tissue left in the cleaning cycle is one that is already dehydrated and in the "antemedium" (xylene if that is what you use). That is "normal procedure" if you want to "reinfiltrate" the tissue, so your next step would be to put it BRIEFLY in clean xylene and transfer it to be infiltrated with paraffin.
  Very likely tat your tissue can be put in the last xylene station and through the paraffin stations.

  Hello. Any suggestions on what to do with tissues that were accidentally
left in the processor during the cleaning cycle? I would think they need
to be re-infiltrated with paraffin at the very least. I don't know if
our processor will let us do anything but a full processing run.
