I'm starting up a brand new Histology lab in a clinic ( I have never
done this before)  serving approx. 120 physicians and an outpatient
surgery center.

I will be doing mostly biopsies, skins, bone marrows  and our largest
specimen will be a gallbladder from the out patient surgery center.

 I will be using a refurbish Sakura Tissue-Tek VIP E150 processor.  My
question is how do I set up the processor. I would like the end time to
be approx. 4:00 am.

How many xylenes, alcohols etc.  Also, set up for a short run,  what
could be the shortest time for a biopsy, starting in formalin.  What
kind of paraffin?
