Addressing the challenges of Grossing Descriptions

Grossing of biospecimens is a key step in the pre-analytical phase with a big impact on the entire process and on the final diagnosis. Traditionally, this step requires notes, drawings and pictures; however grossing descriptions may be subjective and they are often done with multiple tools and without a standardized approach. Through this educational webinar you will learn valuable tools for enhanced grossing descriptions. Through live webcams our Application Specialist discusses the challenges of the grossing step, showing innovative solutions to improve documentation during dissection. What...
