Re: [Histonet] Iron Staining of Bone Marrows

Run your control slides in parallel, one set on the instrument and one off 
using a manual method.  Compare the results.  This would rule out/in a 
kit/instrument problem.

[Histonet] Iron Staining of Bone Marrows

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 appreciated.
