Exposure to formaldehyde fumes can cause this problem.

I have a question. One of the hospitals that sends us bone marrow smears
(they send the unstained smears which are stained here using Wright-Giemsa)
continually come out blue. They claim that they are not using a pretreated
slide or anything unusual but even if we stain them side-by-side with one of
our own, ours come out purple and theirs are still blue. Could an EDTA tube
be the problem? I could sure use your help.
