soft water in lab

From:Cathy Mayton <>

I have used soft water in my lab for almost 3 years now.  I do not have an
auto slide stainer but the soft water is used in the water baths for
paraffin and GMA sectioning.  Surgipath's product called Sta-On is used in
the water baths.  The pH of the water is 7.  The soft water is used for
rinsing slides during staining procedures with no problems.  Reverse
osmosis (RO) is used to make up staining reagents.  Hope this helps.  Good
luck with your water.
