[Histonet] Steiner probs/H. pylori on Nexes
|From:||"Derek & Lynda Leopold" |
I've been searching the Histonet archives for some ideas on how to fix our pesky Steiner stain for H. pylori. I suspect our problems are typical: 1) some slides work and some don't, even in the same batch 2) lots of non-specific silver ppte. 3) we use the microwave method, and often fry the specimens.
Ok, so while I don't want to take up the list's time by revisiting this old problem, anyone who feels like writing off-list with some tips is more than welcome.
My other question is: Can an IHC for H. pylori be done on the Ventana Nexes? If so, does anyone have any opinions as to cost comparison with Steiner? We do about 15 slides a day with microwave Steiner, BUT we usually have to recut and redo about half of those. I argue that the techs could be doing something else, and the Ventana could be doing our stains for us.
Please reply off list, because I know this is old news to most of you.
