I'm with a vendor, BUT -

Although leakage measurement is always a good idea, on 12/12/2006, CAP's

microwave leakage checklist item was deleted (without much fanfare, 
apparently). So the pressure's off for CAP-accredited labs.

What are others doing regarding the CAP questions regarding microwave
leakage and temperature reproducibility?  There is no one in my hospital
that monitors microwaves - I will have to do it myself.  Does anyone
have info on ordering some kind of monitor?  Do these questions apply
only to those lab using microwaves for processing and/or staining?  We
will occasionally perform a special stain in the microwave (not
regularly) - we normally just heat water, agar, etc.
