Here is a reference  link to floaters. My experience with tissue floaters
is that most come from staining baths. However, some manufacturers of
stainers claim there is significance with these floaters. My experience is
that Pathologists read through the floaters and for the most part they
don't mind.
My concern for floaters that pose a real threat to an accurate diagnosis
come from the block. Created either at grossing with contaminated grossing
tools or embedding.
