>1. Understand what a microwave is and how they are produced.
>2. Describe how heat is generated by microwaves.
>3. Compare microwave heating versus conventional heating to
>accelerate tissue processing.
>4. Have complete knowledge of the importance of selecting
>"laboratory grade" microwave ovens for histology use.
>5. List the primary steps for microwave tissue processing.
>6. Understand the relationship of solution volume and specimen size
>for adequate microwave tissue processing.
>7. Know the inert substances such as paraffin was will not absorb
>microwaves and rely on other substances to retain" heat for them.
>8. Select appropriate reagents and specimen containers for
>microwave tissue processing.
>9. Keep laboratory safety at the forefront by discussing

>begin to make a decision for what may fit their lab's specific needs.
>The Learning Objectives will be achieved by the PowerPoint
>Presentations, interactive discussion amongst the group and some
>hands-on demonstration of the Thermo Electron Shandon Tissue Wave
>Microwave Tissue Processor.
>This is the am Workshop
>We will break for lunch which will be furnished by the vendors.
>At this time there will be a short business meeting and once again it is
>election time. So if anyone would like to run for office let it now is
>the time. I would like to turn this over to someone else and get some
>new blood in the society.
>Also at this time there are going to be a lot of raffles for some of the
>latest Histology books.
>The first one will be the histology book written by John Bancroft,
>Marilyn Gamble and is selling for $200.00 on Amazon.
>The next book will be Frieda Carsons book.
>The AFIP manual.
>The Sheehan and Hrapchek Histology book.
>There will also be gift certificates to of course Starbucks and other

> THE SWEET WORKSHOP
>Smart Working Environment Ergonomics Training
>By Jan Minshew Marketing Manager from Leica
>Lean to create a working environment that is designed around the
>principles of ergonomics. This workshop will proved the tools you need
>to protect yourself from work-related musculoskeletal disorders, help
>you determine high task and suggest appropriated work methods. It's
>designed to give you the tools you need to be able to enjoy a pain free
