RE: [Histonet] Gill's 3?

From:"Kemlo Rogerson"

I think any Harris's or Gill's both act as a regressive stain if you
overstain or if they are overoxidised. The trick is to get your staining
times correct with Gill's and use in date stain.

I used Gill 3 for cervical smears and it worked very well but I tended
always to differentiate either out of habit of because I wanted crisper
counterstain; Harris's always appeared muddy. Never understand Gill 1 or
2 though, but then I never got my head around EA50 and EA65 so that's
not unusual.
