RE: [Histonet] Pneumo stain problems


We are doing both.  The immuno is so much nicer.  We use Ventana's pneumo since we have Benchmarks, but I believe they get theirs from Cell Marque.

Subject: [Histonet] Pneumo stain problems

Hello again histonetters,


I have been having problems with the GMS stain for p. Carinii.  It seems
that some days the stain is absolutely beautiful and other days (using the
same proven control ) it does not work.  We have made up all new reagents to
no avail.  I am now considering changing to Immuno staining for Pneumo and
would like some feedback from those of you who are doing this, pros and
cons.  Any and all info will be greatly appreciated.


Thank You,


Ruth Cazares
