We are experiencing an artifact. We notice this in different specimens:
Certain cells appear very blue and hazy with little, if any , nuclear detail
(very washed out looking). Then, on the same section, other cells are
stained perfectly. It's very specific on some cells, so I don't think it is
a deparaffinization problem. It is random on some slides and not on
others . Restaining the slides seems to be of no help, so I am suspecting
it could be in our processing steps. We haven't changed anything on our
processors. Any ideas??
Thanks in advance.
I tried to send photos to no avail.
