I happend to disagree, it does not take much time to close cassettes and I feel that the person grossing the specimen 
should be responsible for what is in the cassette. If that cassette is found empty the following morning who do you go to. You are stuck

We also use bar coding and print the cassettes at the gross station. I have three PA's and 3 residents grossing, that would mean I would need 6 extra
