We have someone from the clinical lab drain the processor, remove the blocks and set them aside for us to complete on Monday morning. Has worked perfectly for us. j

We have someone come in on Sunday, and work with one less person on Monday.

Can you please give me your routine for processing breast cases over the weekend. Do you extend the time in alcohol to achieve the 48 hour maximum, call someone in over the weekend, or just indicate on the patient report that the fixation extended beyond the 48 hours limit for HER 2, 72 hours for ER and PR. Is the ischemic time recorded within the lab as well as on the patient report?
