[Histonet] nuclear fast red

From:"Botsford, Daniel"

Hello Bernadette Weston,

We add 5ml of eosin the the 100% alcohol of the tissue processer.This stains
the tissue pink totissue like uterus, as you cut into the tissue it gives a clear red outline
of the tssue so you know you have a complete section.

Does anyone out there use nuclear fast red at the grossing station on their 
small, clear/whitish specimens so that they can see them better during 
embedding?  Eosin washes out during processing
