Anyone other DAKO autostainer users noticing this?  Thanks,  Sandosis
Have started to notice that with my runs too.  I usually have my positive
control on the top of each slide and that tissue is affected mostly.  I
have been working with my rep for some weeks now to clear this up.  I
might consider going back to the Dako metal racks.
