RE: [Histonet] Warthin-Starry, microwave Dieterle substitute?

From:"Burton, Mark"

I would be cautious before using Nexus for Steiner stains. I would do several
comparison runs against a manual Steiner with well known controls and different
types of controls if you have them available. I used to purchase a spirochete
control form Newcomer and we had a Bartonella control that we made.

Sigma sells a modified steiner kit. Can be used standard as well as
microwave. Ventana has one for the Nexus.

Is there a stain currently being used to replace  Warthin Starry and/or
Dieterle?  We do VERY few and are concerned about reagent costs?
