For the biopsies that routinely have levels taken, our pathologists would prefer to order deepers rather than have a possibly diagnostic piece of the tissue trimmed away before obtaining a section. Yours may feel the same way.
With regard to the controls, our pathologists will specify which control they want to see at the time of the stain request, so we do not use both together.

Subject: [Histonet] DEEPER REQUESTS

Does anyone know if there is an average percentage that a histology lab should expect in deeper/recut requests?  I am trying to establish if our pathologists order more than the "norm" or if I have a quality issue unfolding!!

Also, do most labs use 2 controls for their "pneumo" staining, a routine fungus and a pneumo carnii positive?

Thanks ahead of time!
