Hi Histonetters:
When a pathologist identifies extraneous tissue on a slide, and histology determines that the tissue contamination originates from embedding, what is your procedure for correcting the embedding? Do you remove the extraneous (or contamination) tissue from the block, recut the slide, and discard the original contaminated slide? Do you leave the extraneous tissue in the block and make a note in the report and/or on the slide? Do you keep track of these in a log somewhere?
Thanks in advance for your help.
