   Wow,  you  time  your  techs!?!   Hard  core!!!  45 seconds t   sounds  ok,  but  45 seconds to section?  What if the tissue need   little  extra  care?   Some are harder and some are fatty.  If I   had 45 seconds to cut a giant hunk of breast that would be alot of pr   essure!!!   Just  remember  crap  in  crap out...sometimes you have to
   take   extra  time  t   =)

   To: <[2]histonet <@t> lists   I  know  this question has been asked before ... Can anyone share with
   me wha   they  are  actually  using  as  a  cutting/embedding standard for your
   techs? Fo   instance, how many seconds (mins?) do you allow for embedding a block?
   How   many seconds(mins?) do you allow for cutting a block?
   For  simplicity  here,  I  am  looking  at  the  "plop  and drop" type
   specimens, ie   larger  specimens  that  don't require specific orientation and can be
   placed<   have one section on   one slide. I am trying to find out if the standard I have for my techs
   is<   such a block   and another 45 seconds to section that same block.
   How does that fit with what you guys are all doing?
