I was chastised by a vendor when I asked if anybody else was experiencing a 
certain phenomenon with one of their products. He told me that I should 
have gone to them instead of asking my question on histonet. Well, I did 
and really didn't get any help from them when I did this before going to 
histonet. Instead they were trying to tell me to change my technique. I 
don't know about you, but after you do something one way for 25 or more 
years it would seem that it wouldn't be the technique - or not usually. 
Long story short, we danced around this problem until somebody finally told 
me they had a bad batch of base "product" that went into certain lots. 
Bingo! Thank God for the brave soul that finally admitted that the company 
did have a problem but why couldn't they admit it weeks sooner and save me 
the grief that I had with my tissues?
By the way, there were others out in histoland having the same problem. 
Hope they got it fixed too.
