What did you do with your older stainer?  You could use that for
biopsies.  When I was in clinical we just used an old dip and dunk
Shandon for our biopsies, we took it out of storage.  We never had to
deal with overprocessed biopsies again and we could run the larger
tissue samples on the other tissue processor.  

The other thing is how thick do your pathologist gross the tissue in?
If they are cutting tissue that is too thick you are just going to run
into problems.  Just some suggestions

We are a smaller hospital and use one processing run each night on a
newer Leica ASP300S for all specimens. Though we usually allow "big"
specimens extra fixation time we still have many larger specimens that
are not completely fixed after processing. Does anyone have a processing
protocol that might help us without having to process large and small
specimens separately?
