RE: [Histonet] Blue Glands II

From:"Willis, Donna"

What Fixative are you using.  We had issues many years ago with biopsies
that were fixed in Hollande. Had to add iodine to our stainers to get
out the blue.

Thanks for all the responses to my Blue Gland problem.
However the problem is not a staining problem, it's a processing
I should have specified that one processor was the culprit out of four.
So to recap: One processor out of four produces bx's with bluing in the
glands. All slides run through the same stainer, that's how we traced it
to the one processor Sorry for the confusion, but still looking for
