Maxim, it's hard to credit that slides are still processed manually. How
many in a day?

Subject: Re: [Histonet] processing
We always fixes our breast specimens with 10% formalin and earlier have
had great troubles in processing and cutting. When we started use
acetone as dehydratant and mixtures of aliphatic hydrocarbons
(C7-C10) as clearant, then we got much better results than earlier, but
some difficultes in cut still here. Now we use isopropanol as
dehydratant and mineral oil as clearant and have best results without
any problems. We process all our tissues manually and simultaneously
with all specimens, including curretage, bone, uterus, skin etc. Our
pathologists and pathologists from other hospitals like these slides.
Next year we will be do IHC for breast.
