RE: [Histonet] Setting Ink

From:"Luck, Greg D."


As already mentioned Bouin's (is best), acetic acid is acceptable but
another alternative I discovered is a diluted Bouin's in a spray bottle
configuration (named INK+AID) from a company called "Cancer
Diagnostics".  It's very neat, tidy, goes a long way and has become very
popular here.  Here's a weblink for the company:  Good luck, Greg

Cheers Everyone,  Does anyone know if there is something that sets the
ink on tissue after you have inked the margins.  I vaguely remember
something but I cannot seemed to dig it out of my brain.  
Thanks in advance,
