my last lab put 25 mls of Eosin in the first 100% alcohol container on each
of the tissue processors. It didn't interfere with the H&E staining, it did
stain up the tissue processors, but wasn't a factor as to their operations.
Since the lab processed mostly biopsies, the Eosin was a life saver,
especially when it came to GI and prostate biopsies.
Hope this helps.
