RE: IHC - Hematoxylin fading

From:Chris van der Loos

Dear Mary,
We observe the same problem and never found a good solution to prevent it! 
We keep the slides away from direct light and take pictures as quickly as 
we can. Eventually, we lift the coverslip, rinse the section with lukewarm 
tapwater and re-counterstain it with haematoxilin.
