[Histonet] Wright-Giemsa stain for smears

From:"Etheridge, Sandra AGF:EX"

Hello fellow Histonetters!

I am looking for a manual staining procedure for cytology or blood smears
using the commercial Wright-Giemsa stain.  I was also wondering if it can be
used on regular tissue sections.  I believe the method is quite fast and our
current method does not give adaquate nuclear staining.  Our reagent expired
in December '03, so that could also be the problem.

Your feedback would be appreciated.
