Prior to getting a second processor, we held fatty cases over night in
pen-fix (an alcohol-formalin solution).

We have been having problems with breast tissue being fatty and under
processed.  At the other Lab I worked we had a separate processor for
fatty tissue.  The Lab I'm at now only has one tissue processor for
everything; we have another processor that is not being used.  I brought
up the idea of using that one for fatty tissue, but they want me to get
other opinions on the idea.  So I need ideas on how other Labs are
processing their fatty tissue.
