[Histonet] Blade Rationing

There is no reason to cut quality of the slides by rationing blades. You
have just made your techs job harder, which will effect TAT and now will
probably get numerous recuts not to mention phone calls from the pathologist
reading the slides. I tell my techs use what you need. I purchase them the
accu-edge blades so for me cost is not an issue. But this is coming from a
tech turned manager so my stand is a little different.

I work in a hospital, there are three of us on this particular shift and we
cut approx. 200 blocks, give or take a few.  Our histo lab manager is
telling us we should only be using one pack of blades (50 per pack) a month.
I'm wondering what other techs think of this especially lab managers and
