Generally the easiest thing to do is to extend your time in the 70% ETOH or other low percentage ETOH. This allows you to have a cut off on the weekend vs Friday. We had times of 24 to 48 hours depending upon weekend holiday rotations etc...

Subject: [Histonet] Extended processing for breasts

Would someone who has extended their processing times to accomodate the
CAP regs for breast tissue be willing to share their processing schedules with
me? Up until now, we've had someone in over the weekend to add breast tissue to
processor but are having staffing issues so I'm looking for alternatives.
Thanks a bunch!
