    Biography
      Fiona holds a Bachelor of Applied Science (Med.Science) from RMIT University, Melbourne Australia. Currently, Fiona is a Senior Global Product Manager with Leica Biosystems with particular focus on the Tissue Processing Portfolio. However, Fiona has spent her entire career of nearly 40 years, focussed on Histology, first within a fast paced clinical laboratory based in Melbourne Australia where she held positions of increasing responsibility up to Laboratory Management before moving to Vision Biosystems as Laboratory Manager with oversite of scientific staff involved in R&D for the BOND, CEREBRO and PELORIS systems, Verification and Validation activities, Production and Field Application Support. Fiona then moved into the commercial area involvement in the product development lifecycle from ideation to product development, product marketing and commercialization. Fiona has been actively involved in several scientific organisations with membership of the NSH and HGV and has been invited to give workshops for several years at the NSH

    Time: 9:00am (PST),  12:00pm (EST)
     
    A TWO PART WEBINAR SERIES DEDICATED TO MITIGATING COMMON ISSUES AT EACH STEP OF THE HISTOLOGY PROCESS. In this two part live webinar series, Fiona Tarbet will discuss how to avoid common pitfalls at each stage of the histology process. With over 37 years of experience, Fiona was invited to give this talk at NSH (National Society for Histotechnology) as part of a 4 hour workshop for three consecutive years. For the first time ever, this talk will be presented virtually through this series of webinars.
     
    Learning Objectives
    • Break down the key factors to help guide labs to achieve great quality - from embedding through staining. Causes of excessive compression when cutting sections.
    • Clarify how to overcome distortion during microtomy and resolve issues with flotation.
    • Reviewing what to look for in H&E stains
