Available Functions

  January Lab Webinar - Leadership Strategies for improving DEI in the Workplace
Effective leaders implement best practices through recruiting efforts, organizational diversification, and inclusive communication strategies to ensure everyone is respected and valued regardless of their cultural background or personal identity. Participants learn proven strategies for success to enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion within their respective departments and teams.
  February Lab Webinar - The Histologist’s Role in the Metaplastic Mixture of Barrett’s Esophagus
Many of us have heard of Barrett’s Esophagus but how much do we really know and understand about this disease? This lecture covers the definition and pathogenesis of Barrett’s Esophagus; the myriad histoarchitectural patterns seen in this disease; potential histologic pitfalls and how pathologists navigate these with special stains; and advanced staining techniques using biomarkers to predict progression for optimal patient therapy.
  March Lab Webinar - IHC Quality Control Problems and Their Solutions
In this presentation I will cover Mayo Clinic’s solutions to IHC QC problems such as tissue procurement, QC on unstained slides, and dealing with QC failures. PLEASE NOTE THE DATE FOR THIS SESSION - IT IS SET EARLIER TO ACCOMMODATE A PRESENTER CONFLICT.
  April Lab Webinar - Change, What's In It for Me?
We live in an ever-changing world. As happy and as set in our routines as we may be, there are always new variables that come into play that require us to adapt and change. This is very true in the histology laboratory where everything from new expectations to new regulations and technologies require us to make changes. As necessary as change is, though, it is not always easy, and we do not always know where or how to start. In the end, we can choose to be dragged kicking and screaming through changes, or be proactive drivers of changes that benefit those working in the laboratory.
  May Lab Webinar - Microtomy Troubleshooting
This session will cover all the challenges a histotech might face during microtomy including chatter, compression, divots and more.
  June Lab Webinar - Whole Tick Histology A Practical Protocol to Prepare Paraffin-embedded Hard Ticks for Histology
Ticks are important ectoparasites that are capable of transmitting multiple classes of pathogens and are currently linked with many emerging tick-borne diseases worldwide. There is a continuous need to further our understanding of ticks and the pathogens they transmit. Whole tick histology provides a full scope of the tick internal anatomy, which allows researchers to examine multiple organs of interest in a single section. However, routine histologic processing for hard ticks is challenging due to the rigidity and impermeability of their exoskeleton. While this problem can be overcome by embedding the specimens in hard media like epoxy resin, the sectioning process calls for specialized equipment and techniques that are not routinely available in many standard histology laboratories. In addition to discussing potential problems when working with paraffin-embedded whole ticks, this workshop will introduce a practical and customizable protocol to produce high quality whole tick sections using commonly available tools, reagents and standard histologic equipment.
  July Lab Webinar - Invisible Visible: Tissue Clearing
This session will touch on the science behind transparent tissues and why such a thing might be of interest and have utility, including topics of scatter, absorption, refraction and refractive index. The session will also discuss Diesseroth’s contributions on clarity and also Ueda/Matsumodo and CUBIC. Lastly, it will cover toxic vs non-toxic science and protecting histologists and the work of Kwanghun Chung’s work and how that all of this is impacting the future of clearing.
  August Lab Webinar -The Glorious Tonsil - Structure and Function and Why it is Such a Great Staining Control.
How many times have you seen this something like this on an antibody product sheet: “Suggested positive control – Tonsil”? Most of us are familiar with the palatine tonsils – particularly if we have ever had tonsilitis. These masses of lymphoid tissue are in the walls of the pharynx and nasopharynx and are important to developing immunity to pathogens entering the body through the oral cavity. Tonsil structure and cellular composition important to this immune function. This, and their relative availability, also makes them a handy laboratory tool. But how do you know if your reagents are staining the right cells in the tonsil? In this session, we will review the structure of the tonsil and examples of staining from special stains and immunohistochemistry. The goal is to gain a better understanding of the components of the tonsil so you can feel more confident in your interpretation of staining results.
  September Webinar - Bone Decal for IHC and ISH
Description coming, stay tuned!
  October Lab Webinar - High Reliability Safety in Histology
High-Reliability Organizations (HROs) are those which maintain consistent positive outcomes without major safety incidents. Is your histology laboratory a HRO? What would it take to get your lab to that level? Learn about the safety processes you need to have in place to be in that category and the checks that go along with them. Highly reliable safety is a possibility for you and your team.
  November Lab Webinar - The Elephant in the Room: Measuring Productivity 
Productivity can be a touchy subject in the histology lab, but taking a step back and assessing your methods when cutting can not only help your lab, but can also make your work easier! Learn more with this case study to see how even a seasoned pro can improve!
  December Webinar - CAP and Joint Commission Inspections: What You Should Know
