RE: [Histonet] warthin starry

Hi Celia,

We also had problems with gastric bx's and it wasn't a consistent problem.  I retrieved them and then stained them H&E and they were much better.  It did not seem to matter what you retrieved them with either....very weird.  We think it is something with the fixation.  I had a problem with bone marrows and it turned out to be, the decal was messed up, but I retrieved them and they stained better.  Go figure.... but it worked.  My Pathologist also heard about this at a conference he went to. They did not know why it worked either.   We do the microwave Steiner now and it works much better.  Try the retrieval...good luck.
