For the first time here, we have Urologists using the robotic method for removing prostates. The PA always receives them fresh, inks them, then puts the whole prostate in alcoholic fixative (currently Zfix from Anatech). The next day they are grossed in and processed.  The prostates we have received lately are raw in the middle and unable to be grossed in, whereas before they were fine.

Has anyone had similar experiences?
