  Other than good fixation (enough amount and time), thin slices and a correct processing protocol, you will keep having this problem for ever!
  Ah, and the patien is the one who will be affected!

  Hi Everyone,

Just wondering if anyone has any neat ideas about what to do with fatty 
tissue that comes out of the processor not processed. We have done the 
"squeeze" technique and then re soak in paraffin. That helps but any other 
ideas? It's one of those pathologists who has to put everything in the day 
it arrives and is not a thin slicer.

Thanks in advance
