Hello everyone!
We have always had one program (catch-all) for all our specimens that we ran overnight on an Excelsior tissue processor.  We just purchased a new VIP 6 and I want to have a program for our larger fatty specimens such as breast cases and run our small biopsies on another program.  How much time do you use on each station for your larger cases such as breasts?  Particularly the formalin stations, 1 hour or 2 hours each?
Thanks in advance for your replies.
