What is it exactly that they don't like about the biopsies? What type of
microtomy errors? Too thick? Chatter? Thick-thin ribbons?
Also, are the rest of non-biopsy tissues looking OK? And, are all the
tissues being run on the same tissue processor time schedule?
We can "guess" at the problem, but we need a little more information, to
make certain the Histonet community is giving you the right help.

Please we are having problems getting great slides from
tissue/biopsy specimens like gastric, esophageal, needdle biopsy and
Liver Biopsy. Our pathologists are not happy at all because of this
I will really, really appreciate if you guys in histoland could
suggest some solutions that could stop the problem.
Hoping to read from you guys asap. You guys are the best.
Have you try soften your biopsy tissues in ammonium water (~ 10%)
before sectioning? That's seem to work very well for my lab.
You can email me for more detail if needed.
