RE: [Histonet] Drain Hose for Leica Stainer

From:"Connie McManus"

This happened to my Leica stainer about 2 years ago.  I went to Lowe's
and got some tubing that has actually served us better than the hose
that comes with the stainer.  I did NOT get that crinkly wrinkled up
hose, but some clear, smooth tubing.  There is no more nasty fungus and
bacteria growth in the tubing like the wrinkled up hose used to get.  

Be sure to get a hose clamp, too.  I found that the clamp that came with
our stainer had rusted through.  It's not a bad idea to change that when
you change the hose.

Subject: [Histonet] Drain Hose for Leica Stainer

Can I just go to Home Depot and get a new drain hose for our Leica
stainer?   Ours is cracked, our clinical/facilities engineering folks
won't touch it because we have a maintenance agreement, and we're not
due for a maintenance call for several months... It doesn't look like
rocket-science...  can't I just go get a length of solvent resistant
hose, a new hose clamp and be done with it?
