[Histonet] Re: Wright-Giemsa stain on tissue

From:"Johnson, Teri"


In my days in clinical labs, we did a May-Grunwald Giemsa stain on our
bone marrow biopsies and particle preps. I'm with Dr. Richmond in that
there the staining results from the Zenker's fixed material was second
to none.  However, we were able to do a reasonably good job of it,
provided the pathologists never had to pull archival slides to compare.
That being said, I am happy to never go back to using it, what a pain!

You might try using the M-G Giemsa technique and see how it works for
