GI Biopsy Inking @ Gross Station

From:William Thoendel

Hi All,
What type of stain do the PA's or pathologists put on gastric and colon 
biopsies when they gross the tissue to aide the embedder the following 
morning?  I have been using safranin for years but have now encountered 
questioning from the histo department that some nuclear detail is 
'smudgy'... can this be attributed to the safranin??
