1-Make sure that your instruments are located in the same sequence as your procedure allowing the readily transfer of specimens between them.
2-Get a tissue processor and processing protocol that will allow you to spend the same time preparing and processing the specimens, as the time it takes you to finish the slides.
3-Write cassettes and slides automatic, and reader for both in each cutting station.
4-Automate staining (all types) and coverslipping, and
5-Delegate all non technical tasks to assistants

Hi Histonetters-
I am looking for input, pros and cons or anything else you can offer.  We are designing a new histology lab to move to and I am interested in how others have handled this along with using LEAN processes.  What would you do differently?  What would you do the same?  Are you in the tri-state (IA, WI, MN) area and open to visitors?

Thank you in advance for your thoughts-
