Subject: [Histonet] Teabags

Hi all,

Just a curiosity of mine, having contracted for many places I've seen many different processes, some efficient and some inefficient. I find a lot of labs do what they've always done just because they've always done something a certain way for so long whether it's useful or not and generally are not interested in change.

One of these things I'm referring to is using teabags. I know some of you LOVE them, but there are few things I loathe more than trying to dig out a tiny biopsy sample from a teabag along with trying to open it while being stuck together by the wax. 

Why in the world would anyone ever use teabags when there are microcassettes and even biopsy cassettes?

Please let me hear it.
