Q. I’m a lab director and our samples frequently are coming out wrong even though we keep our equipment maintained. Why?

A. Often, lab personnel try to add or change solutions in processors before they call us. This can mask both equipment problems and operational or training issues that may be occurring. Call MTS first for effective diagnosis and resolution!

Q. Our processor is showing low solution, but we just changed chemicals. Do we have a leak?

A. Check the pickup tubes. Sometimes the tube can accidently be routed through the handle portion of the container following a chemical change. Or the tube is not oriented properly at the bottom of the bottle. Newer processors have a positive fail-safe connection between the unit and the bottle, eliminating this common problem.

Q. We had a power outage and now my cryotome is beeping at me. What’s next?

A. You’ll need to check to see if the specimen blade has been moved out too far. Also, the advancement will need to be reset at the bottom of its range. All of these adjustments can be done by hand or with onboard controls – never loosen the fasteners holding the cutting block in place!

Q. The quick-freeze block on my cryotome has a sample stuck to it. How do I get it off?

A. Be very careful; not only is the quick-freeze block dangerously cold, it is made of fragile ceramic which can break if tapped too aggressively. Usually, lightly tapping the side of the block will dislodge the sample.
