Hello, Another question, Is anyone using the Pathos system to process animal tissues? I would really appreciate any comments good/ and or bad on this topic.
Best regards,

Subject: Pathos Processing tissue problems

Hello, Our Surgical Pathology Department has been using the Pathos processor. I work in research and we have begun to have issues with the tissue falling off of the slide after pretreatment for IHC. Has anyone else noticed this happening? The tissue is much harder in the block than the standard method of processing. Is this normal? Does that have anything to do with the tissue falling off the slides?
Thanks in advance.
