The averages from a survey of 325 histolabs is 50 blocks/hour to embed and 24 blocks/hour to cut.
If interested I can send you an article about this.

I know this question has been asked before ... Can anyone share with me what
they are actually using as a cutting/embedding standard for your techs? For
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
in a mold easily. These types of blocks will generally have one section on
one slide. I am trying to find out if the standard I have for my techs is
too tough or too lenient on them. I allow 45 seconds to embed such a block
and another 45 seconds to section that same block.
How does that fit with what you guys are all doing?
