RE: [Histonet] filtering hematoxylin

Interesting question. Do you filter to remove haematoxylin/ mordant
precipitant or cells/ tissue? As a recovering Cytologist I would suggest
you filter at least daily, if not 2x daily, to remove cells/ tissue that
can cause 'carry over'. 

Cells from 'fatty organs' such as breast or small celled undiff., from
my experience can do this damage. It's easier to filter than for the
'sword of Damocles' to hang over the Patient.
