Re: blue mucin in H&E
|From:||Janice Mahoney <email@example.com>|
I've worked with Pathologists who have said that the H&E was not good unless the mucin stains pale blue. Maybe you don't have a problem but have fixed one.

We have recently switched to a linear staining system, which
requires set, identical time in each solution. To facilitate this, the
concentration of the acid alcohol was lowered from 1% to 0.2%.
We are now experiencing blue staining of mucin in cervical, colonic
and gastric biopsies. Any thoughts?!
