Blue is the prettiest!
into work they've already been done and are fixing. Well, one day not so long ago we had a busy day for frozens that stretched until after the hisotechs left. Usually one of the pathologist will do the afternoon frozens, but we had a fill in while one of our doctors was on vacation and he seemed to assume that I was going to do it. So I did it. It is a different cryostat from the other ones I've used but they're similar enough and the sections were tolerable. I do like having tinted OCT, which is something we didn't have at school. It makes it easier to differentiate one chuck from another (other than the positions in the holes in the cryostat).

  1. Tinted OCT?? How cool is that!! The only color missing is my favorite, pink, but somehow pink OCT on pink tissue seems kinda crazy!
