Re: [Histonet] Haematoxylin absorption

Hello Simione,

Your problem sounds like incomplete deparaffinization.  Many modern
paraffins have plastisizers that may become difficult to remove if the
sections are dried at a high temperature.  Patchy staining is a good
indicator that some of the embeddment is still present, and interfering
with staining.
