Re: [Histonet] Fite Stain

From:Rene J Buesa

Yes, it is probably ruined. The "wax" cover of M.leprae is much more  
delicate than the one in M. tuberculosis and that is why dewaxing  
should be done with a mixture of xylene and some oil (I always used  
peanut oil, until I changes to mineral oil).
They are probably ruined.
