[Histonet] GI biopsy slides

We cut 3 levels on one slide. Each level typically has two sections across the slide. If there are multiple pieces of tissue that need to be embedded in a little larger mold, we put 3 levels on 1 slide by breaking away the excess paraffin around the sections while they're on the waterbath. Then we can then fit 3  levels on 1 slide but each level will only have 1 section. Hope this makes sense.

Subject: [Histonet] GI biopsy slides

Hi folks,

We are re-thinking how we cut our GI biopsy slides. Currently we are cutting 3 levels with 3 sections on each slide.  Is anyone out there putting all 3 levels on the same slide?  We are receiving cases with a large number of samples and some our pathologists would like to see fewer slides.
