[Histonet] Re:Hematoxylin

From:Gayle Callis


Contact your Richard Allen sales rep, and have them send smaples of all the 
different types of hematoxylins (Gill formulations, Harris, progressive 
hematoxylins, and Mayers)  or the just ones you want to try.  We  prefer 
hematoxylin 1, a progressive hematoxylin that does not need acid alcohol 
differentiation. It can be shipped to Montana in winter without 
freezing.   Richard Allen has a wonderful hematoxylin and eosin staining 
guide, found on their website to help you out with any of the various 
types.  WE never went wrong with Gill II formulations either.

They also sell eosin y and other reagents needed for hematoxylin staining, 
clarifier (acetic acid solution) and bluing solution.

Good luck
