[Histonet] Giemsa problems

From:Karla Arrington

Microscopic exam of a bone marrow aspirate stained with Giemsa shows blue-gray erythrocytes and blue leukocytes. Is this caused by the solution too alkaline, too acid, from an anemic patient or just fine?  Also can you prepare stock neutralized formalin by storing the solution over a layer of calcium carbonate, when the solution withdrawn from this stock container will it be acidic, alkaline, neutral or what?   Thanks!Karla Arrington=0Afreckles9660@yahoo.com
