I assume you are using the Richard Allan eosin Y alcoholic?

Subject: [Histonet] Dull eosin?

Hi everyone, 
I am having a problem with my eosin in the H&E.  My pathologists say
that it is dull and the RBCs are too red rather than orange.
Interestingly, when I take out the hematoxylin (Richard Allen Harris),
acid acohol (Richard Allen Clarifier) and bluing (Richard Allen Bluing)
the eosin is nice and bright. Our tap water for the rinses is pH 6.8,
and we use a Sakura Prisma stainer.  Any ideas?
Thank in advance!
