Dear Frieda,
This is a weird coincidence.  I had never heard of eosin fading until a couple of days
ago.

Then I did a batch of slides (ours are done by hand) and the investigator who they were
for was on vacation so I did not deliver them that day.  I looked at them a few days later
and the eosin was bleeding out into the surrounding area, outside the tissue itself.  Is
this what you meant?
I will check the alcohols as I feel maybe these are not true 95 or 100 per cent due to our
very humid weather last week and maybe enough eosin was not taking out in those
dehydration steps.
