Over-processing of biopsy specimens in histology is a common obstacle that has a downstream effect on section quality, IHC and TAT. This webinar will discuss a 3 month project, triggered by an article in the NSH Journal that used a 30 minute protocol, using 3000 GI samples to see if this could be implemented. This resulted in a dramatic absence of section shattering (little or no soak), sharper IHC quality and substantial decrease in TAT.
