[Histonet] RE: eosin and microwave processing

From:Jennifer Hofecker

Hi Sue,
I have used microwave processing in the past and we
did put eosin in our isopropyl alcohols.  It never
seemed to cause any problems except pink paraffin
sometimes! Definitely better than "naked" biopsies:)

Good Luck,
Jennifer Hofecker







Hi all,

Does anyone using a microwave tissue processor use
Eosin in their 
alcohol?
Or know of a reason why it shouldn't be used?

We put eosin in our alcohol on our Tissue-Tek and have
grown accustomed 
to
our bxs being a nice pink.

We've just gotten our first Energy Beam microwave
tissue processor and 
have
found it hard to embed "naked" bxs.

Thanks in advance,
