Subject: Re: [Histonet] Reprocess Procedure

A few years ago this subject was discussed on histonet and somebody - I think it was Joe the Toe - said that they just melted the paraffin away from the tissue if it had been embedded and threw it back in to process with the next batch of tissues. The theory being that the part of the tissue that was processed ok was protected by the paraffin and the part that needed additional processing was exposed. I don't have to reprocess often but when I was gone a student had a problem with the processor and put in an emergency call to me. I told her to do this and the tissues came out fine the next day.
