Re: [Histonet] Project for summer high school student/sci-major

From:Gayle Callis

We needed to evaluate new and different types hematoxylins and let a
summertime student do this for his project. Several hematoxylins were used,
progressive and regressive, and he was required to not only do the staining
but also evaluate the staining times (a time panel for each hematoxylin).
It proved valuable to us as we were able to chose a hematoxylin we liked
plus knew the optimal staining time for our needs.  The the student had
enough sections for photographs (can be side by side for comparison) - it
was a tidy, easy and fast project in the short summer schedule. He had to
learn the difference about how progressive versus regressive staining
works.  It was not an expensive, unsafe nor too difficult project, fit into
my labs schedule. He did a wonderful job. 

Good luck
