Hi Histonetters!


I have a question regarding the use of microwave tissue processors, the CAP
requirement for minimum 6 hours of NBF fixation for breast specimens.  Does
anyone know if by using the microwave, the need for the 6 hours fixation can
be reduced?  I want to make sure to follow the CAP requirements, but
wondered if there were any exceptions/changes etc with regards to using the


Any help would be appreciated.
