Hello fellow histo netters,

If any of you have a specific policy for cut off times for specimens (i.e. large mainly, colon etc.)in your department, can you please respond to me personally.  I am developing a policy and would like to know what the standards in the group are-I have my pre conceived thoughts of what should be the times but, I would really like to get an idea of what other facilities do.  My processor begins its cycle at 3:30pm each day with three changes of formalin and goes into the first alcohol(70%) at 7pm each night.  

Thank you in advance.
