Re: [Histonet] Eosin on processor

From:Dawn Cowie

We also do this. It does not interfere at all with the H&E stain or subsequent IHC's. Yes, it is a life saver for small bx's. It makes it much easier to find them in the cassette when embedding and also when they are being cut - they show up very nicely in the block. You can see more easily if you are going deep enough for a good section, etc.

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.
