[Histonet] Prostate Needle Biopsies

We cut levels x2 with no unstained.  We've never had a problem going back to a block for additional recuts or specials.  We date all our precut IHC slides (patient or control) with an expiration date of 6 weeks.  Slides cut for histochemistry stains seem to have no expiration. Hope this helps.

I am posting this question for our Histology manager.    For prostate needle biopsies how many levels and unstained slides are people cutting and also how long after the case is signed out is everyone keeping the unstained slides that have been cut?

Thanks in advance for everyone's help.
