Re: [Histonet] nexes stainer

From:"Gudrun Lang"

BB is the german abbriviation for "Berliner Blau", that is prussian blue in English.
Do you think, it is saving of time to do part of the stains on the nexes and the others by hand? 
Are the advantages of a standardized stain so big in spite of doing all by hand?
