Using at least 25 different types of tissues, prepare parallel almost identical pairs of slices for each tissue and process them simultaneously in your new tissue processor and in the old one.
Prepare H&E sections and give them to the pathologists concealing the used tissue processor. The pathologists should decide if there are differences between the pairs of sections.
The pathologist's opinion should be registered in the QC file and that will be your validation.

Does anyone know what the CAP is requiring to validate a new tissue processor?
Thank You
