Step 19 - Clearly Label Cassettes (Grossing) RIGHT: Cassettes are always clearly labeled. Accurate identification of specimens is of paramount importance. WRONG: Sometimes it is difficult to read the labels on cassettes. A bit of guesswork may be required. ------------------ These illegible cassette labels are totally unacceptable.

Step 18 - Avoid Overloading Cassettes (Grossing) RIGHT: Cassettes are never overloaded with tissue thus allowing ready access to processing reagents and preventing distortion of specimens. If the volume of tissue is too great a second cassette is used. WRONG: Cassettes are often crammed full of tissue thus preventing access of processing reagents. Sometimes specimens are distorted in the process. ------------------ These cassettes are over-loaded. If processing goes ahead the specimens will be distorted and it is likely that the processing will be incomplete. Get the full guide @ http://bit.ly/1X8RGNm

Step 17 - Choose Appropriate Cassettes (Grossing) RIGHT: Choose appropriate cassettes for the specimen type being processed. Tissue fragments shrink during processing and, if cassette perforations are too large, fragments may escape into processing reagents or, worse still, transfer over to another specimen. WRONG: A one size fits all approach is used when placing specimens into cassettes. ------------------ A) Some of the smaller tissue fragments seen here may escape through the holes in the cassette. This will become even more likely as the tissue shrinks during processing. B) Cassettes with fine perforations are available for small tissue fragments. Get the full guide @ http://bit.ly/1X8RGNm
