In some laboratories it makes good practice to alternate tissue type in
numerical order. In situations of human error, basic human logic can
identify a mistake much easier (i.e during embedding, or slide labeling with
alternating clored cassettes.)
In contrast, a flawless accessioning protocol wouldn't require one to
alternate. But who is without flaws?
