Hi Carol, 
                   I am not aware of any procedure that is regulated for 
this. When we have processor problems or purchase a new one we usually run 
test on each specific protocol. ie: bx's, fat run etc. We just make up 
some blocks from scrap specimens and run them through. We log the outcome 
in our QA logs. 

Hope this helps

[Histonet] New processor help

Is there a procedure or some standard method validation process out there
for starting up a new tissue processor? Maybe one that would be approved
by regulatory agency? 
I am not sure whether this would just be left up to the pathologists to 
decide what they would prefer.

Thank you,
