RE: [Histonet] Embedding centers and Hematoxylin

From:"Weems, Joyce"

We use Tissue Tek from Sakura. We just replaced one we had since the
70's. The old ones lasted forever, but I don't know how the new ones
will do. 

We use Richard Allen Hematoxylin 7211, which is most nearly like the old
Harris hematoxylin that I have found. We use it regressivly and get a
nice bright stain without blue goblet cells. 

Best wishes,

I have a few questions for everyone. 1) How many years do you get from
your embedding centers, and what make are they? 2) What type of
hematoxylin does everyone use for their H&E's? In general, do you prefer
a progressive or regressive stain?
Thanks in advance for your replies.
