From:"King, Curtis - RAS"

Hello All,

I see there has been a lot of activity concerning the Richard Allan
Scientific Hematoxylin. We do have a Modified Mayer's Hematoxylin cat#72804.
Feel free to contact me with any questions regarding our complete reagent

Richard Allen makes a Mayer's Hematoxylin.   It is included in the Congo 
Red kit that we buy, but I'm sure its available as a single item.

>I'm looking for a Pre-Made Mayer's Hematoxylin that we can use for our
routine H&E staining procedure.  We make up our Mayer's Hematoxylin from
scratch, but have recently been given permission to buy something that is
pre-made.  We've tried Harris, but the doctors do not like the
differentiation that take place with using that kind of hematoxylin.  (We
stain by hand, so one tech's dip might be longer or shorter than another
tech's dip in the differentiator.)  They are seeing variations in nuclear
staining, no matter how careful we are with our "dips".

need differentiation.  Everything that I've tried so far is not working out
to their satisfaction.  We use a Gill's III for our FS set up, and they do
not want that either (for the routine H&E's).
