Re: [Histonet] Bone Marrow Cores

From:"Joe Nocito"

see if you can get a sample of B-Plus from BBC biochemical. The fixing 
results mimic the old B-5 mercury-laded fixative. We don't have any problems 
with cores staying on. The other option is to obtain positive charged 
slides. They  are more expensive than regular slides, but how can you put a 
price on a potential law suit or have to re-do another bone marrow

Subject: [Histonet] Bone Marrow Cores

We recently have switched from Z-5 to formalin for fixing our bone marrow 
cores (Medical Director's request). We are now having issues with the cores 
staying on the slides during IHC. We have tried extra Sta-On and extra 
baking to avail. Any suggestions. Thanks,
