[Histonet] Peloris Users

We have helped that problem by being sure there is adequate graded
alcohols on the Peloris.  There must be between 60-70%, 80-90%, and 95%
before you have the 100% alcohols.  If the concentration's are too high
there is inadequate infiltration of the tissue's.  We usually only use
the 2 hour and the 8 hour processing factory default.  Unless, we have a
stat.  We have also noticed if you wait until Prompted to change the
lowest alcohol at 51% we see degradation in our staining as well.  We
are not letting it get below 58-60% before we change an alcohol out.  


I hope this helps,

To all you Peloris users, here is my delimma.  When we follow the
machines prompt to change the solutions because of purity and we then
process small biopsies on the machine, it overprocesses the specimens.
So the staff have been overrriding the prompt to change the solutions
causing specimens to be processed in impure solutions causing a host of
other problems. Have any of you out there with Peloris experience had
this problem? Is it a machine problem that should be fixed or human
error due to overriding the prompts?  I am new to this position and have
very little experience with this issue so any help or suggestions will
be greatly appreiciated. Thank you.
