We had a similar problem and solved it by switching to non-charged slides for our silver stains.  It seems that the adhesive coating was taking up the stain.

Best of Luck,

Has anyone ever had dirty staining in negative gastric comtrol?  I am getting some nonspecific staining in some of my gastric biopsies.  The nonspecific staining I am talking about is groups of ppt., almost looks like bacteria but is way to big and is not uniform in size or clumps.  I don't see it in any of the other Ipexes that we are currently performing just the gastric biopsies.  Any ideas anyone??
