We are currently handling all prostate, lung, heart, and breast biopsies
as fine needle biopsies (FNB). We cut 10 slides 3 of which are used for
H&E's and the rest as unstained plus slides. What has happened is that
we throw thousands of unused expensive slides a year because they are
not used. Is there a general standard in practice out there for FNBs?
Unfortunately, with the economy the way it is; and trying always to find
ways to bring down expenses this seems counteractive.


Thank you
