[Histonet] IHC on H&E section

From:Amos Brooks

         Don't bother destaining it. It's extra steps that increase the 
odds of having the tissue fall off. Once you get the coverslip off running 
the slide back to water thru alcohol will take out most of the eosin. The 
pretreatment (whatever it is) will probably take out the rest. Unless you 
are not using hematoxylin as a counterstain just leave it on. Less you need 
to worry about afterword.
