We  currently run 2 VIP processors with different programs.   The cassettes
are put in the basket, angle up, as they are grossed. Most of the time in a
fairly decent order. The basket is  in formalin.  At the end of the day we
can just pull out the ones that  go on a separate run and then leave the
other  ones in order. If you have blocks "floating" in formalin, I would
worry about fixation. The only block I see floating are the ones that the
person grossing uses dry sponges in.
