RE: [Histonet] silver question

From:"Bartlett, Jeanine"

That hasn't changed:  same mountant for years.  And I need to correct something in my initial email.  The stain faded after only 2 weeks.

	Check the mountant you are using. Some will fade Spirochete silver stains
	very quickly

	Has anyone experienced a problem with their Steiner's "fading" after a
	period of time?  We had a slide that had been stained with the Steiner
	procedure and it was very positive, however when it was reviewed at a
	much later date it appeared negative.  Another section was stained and
	it was positive.  I know that leaving the sections for a long time in
	xylene before they are coverslipped can lead to fading but wouldn't this
	be apparent when the slides were originally viewed? 
	Any suggestions?
