  • Understanding and Updating Tissue Processing Protocols Using the GREAT Method

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 01/27/2021

    This webinar will review the importance of protocol review and introduce the GREAT method.

    When was the last time the tissue processing protocol in your laboratory was updated? Most laboratories have been using the same set of tissue processing protocols for as long as they can remember. Many labs do not know where their processing protocol came from or even how it was put together in the first place. To some, considering a protocol change is intimidating because they have no idea where to start. New tissue processors are often brought into the laboratory only to be saddled with the same old processing protocols that could be decades old in some cases. Tissue processing is one of the most time-intensive tasks in a histology laboratory, and with the importance of turnaround time and quality continuing to grow, few labs realize that opportunities for efficiency gains can be found right under their noses in terms of updating their protocols. In this workshop, we will debunk some processing myths, review the purpose and function of the common steps and reagents in tissue processing, and finally break down the anatomy of a protocol and learn how to evaluate a protocol for opportunities for improvement using the GREAT method.

    This webinar will focus on troubleshooting artifacts that show up on H&E stained slides.

    This webinar will focus on troubleshooting artifacts that show up on H&E stained slides. There are so many variables in Histology that can lead to staining artifacts. It can take days, weeks and even months to resolve an issue. Patience is a virtue. Using specific examples I've witnessed in my career, I will show stained slide artifacts and explain the process used to come to a resolution. After this webinar you will have a better understanding of troubleshooting and will know where to begin the next time a staining artifact shows up on your H&E slide.

  • Multidisciplinary Collaboration to Facilitate Pathology-Driven Reflex Testing

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 10/15/2020

    Multidisciplinary teams must work together to break down the silos across disciplines in order to standardize biomarker testing and improve tissue utilization.

    Broad molecular profiling to assess biomarkers that drive treatment decisions are now recommended by guidelines for numerous solid tumors. Pathologists, oncologists, radiologists, histologists, and molecular biologists are all key stakeholders in ensuring biomarker testing is performed according to the guidelines. Multidisciplinary teams must work together to break down the silos across disciplines in order to standardize biomarker testing and improve tissue utilization. Opening up lines of communication throughout the multidisciplinary team is now more important than ever to enable guideline-driven biomarker testing. Turnaround time is critical, as biomarker test results are used to determine appropriate treatment options. Enabling pathologists to order biomarker testing at diagnosis decreases the time to an actionable biomarker result. Biomarker testing algorithms should be developed in conjunction with the multidisciplinary team to facilitate reflexive testing by tumor type. As we move into the age of precision medicine, it is even more essential that we take care to ensure tissue is preserved properly and triaged to ensure biomarker testing can be performed after the diagnosis is rendered. Due to the dearth of tissue available from fine needle aspirates or core needle biopsies, tissue stewardship is necessary to allocate the available tissue appropriately. The multidisciplinary team should also be utilized to address pre-analytical variables affecting the quality of biomarker testing results. It is important to understand how preanalytical variables that occur during tissue processing affect different technologies and how to work together across disciplines to optimize tissue quality and utilization to drive biomarker testing.

    Cristi Rigazio, BS, MS, HT(ASCP)

    Clinical Specialist

    Sentara Laboratory Services

    Cristi Rigazio is currently the Clinical Specialist of Anatomic Pathology for Sentara Laboratory Services in Virginia.  Her responsibilities include, but are not limited to, equipment selection and validation, policy and procedure writing, development and training of the Laboratory Information System (LIS) and CAP compliance.    Prior to joining Sentara, Cristi opened a Physician Owned Lab for a group of Gastroenterologists, responsible for obtaining state licensure and CAP accreditation.  That opportunity presented opportunities to customize the LIS, learn about CPT codes, convert from ICD-9 to ICD-10 codes and develop interfacing between the Electronic Medical Records system and the LIS.  Cristi was first introduced to histology in the pre-clinical research environment, where she learned about GLP and FDA compliance.
