Re: [Histonet] Eosin Staining

From:"Katri Tuomala"

  Hi Jennifer,

  Remove the coverslip in xylene and bring the section back through one or
two changes of xylene and absolute alcohol and then into 95% ethanol.
  Leave in ethanol until enough Eosin has come out of the section and then
dehydrate, clear and mount. That should take care of it.

  > I recently did some H&E staining for a PI and they said that the Eosin
was too pink.  She was told that I could remove the cover slip using xylene
and could reduce the Eosin that way so I wouldn't have to cut any more
slides.  Would anyone know how to do this without hurting the tissue?
