RE: [Histonet] Hematoxylin shortage

From:"Vacca Jessica"

I have received an email from my Supply chain that states there is a hemo shortage due to the hurricanes last year. Thermo is offering a synthetic substitute. We order Hemo (Richard Allen) from Cardinal. I spoke with my sales rep, and it was confirmed, but he did state not to stock up because it would cause an even more chaotic situation of hoarding and not be able to keep up with the demand. Let's see what the future brings??

Never pay attention to a vendor urging to stock up. It just may be a gimmick to increase sales/commissions. There is nothing concrete so far about that rumor.

  Can someone please tell me what is up with all the talk about a hematoxylin shortage? There is even a vendor telling their customers they need to stock up. Is this fact or rumor?
