Slides in 20 years

From:Scott Taft <>


I have seen various Mayer's Hematoxylin recipes over
the months posted here. The recipes dealt with the
absence of chloral hydrate. My question is this:

Does anyone know what the staining intensity might be
like in 20 years if the slides are pulled from the
slide files. Especially if they use this for their H &
E stain.

Another way of asking: Has anyone been using this
recipe for awhile and if so, how do earlier slides
look after being pulled from the slide files?
