RE: blue haze artifact

From:Walzer Susan

We started getting a blue haze on our H&E's since our water dept. switched
to chloriamines in the tap water. We use Meyer's hematoxylin on the Leica
Auto stainer and have had to extend rinsing times.

Greetings Histonetters:

Has anyone ever experienced the "blue haze artifact"?  I've heard that there
was some talk of this a while back.  We seem to be experiencing it
occasionally in our lab.  I haven't been able to find a reference for it
anywhere!  Any thoughts?  Ideas?  Help?

Thanks in advance!
