RE: [Histonet] Iron Staining of Bone Marrows

From:"Mike Pence"

There is only 3 protocols for the iron stain available. Stain all three
and ask him which one he can live with. Maybe you should ask him what he
expects then to look like.

We use a Vetana NEXUS special stainer and stain our bone marrow
aspirates and smears with Ventana's iron kit.  One of our pathologists
has complained (repeatedly) that our irons aren't staining like he
expects.  Has anyone else had trouble with Ventana's iron kit?  Is
anyone using a different protocol?  Any advise would be greatly
