Hello Colin
We recently ran an exercise for the University of Pretoria, Veterinary
Faculty. We processed a wide range of animal tissues, including, believe it
or not crocodile tissues. These tissues were processed in a Milestone RHS-2
/ Histos 3 histoprocessor. The results were excellent and in some cases we
obtained better morphology on tissues than the current conventional
processing. If you would like contact details for the persons required I can
happily assist you.

Best regards,

Subject: [Histonet] Microwave v conventional processing

Hi - we are trying to go down the microwave route in processing but
inevitably some of our veterinary pathologists are questioning whether
microwave sections are as "good" as conventional processing. Can anyone
point me in the right direction to find any comparison done between
microwave processing and conventional overnight processing with regard
to section and staining quality.
