Re: [Histonet] plasma cell staining with Ventana Ultraview kit

From:"Richard Cartun"

Extra-follicular dendritic cells in lymph nodes will stain with some cytokeratin antibodies.  I use this staining as an internal positive control.

While doing CKAE1/AE3's on the XT Benchmark, we are having plasma cell
staining and histiocytes staining - especially on our sentinel nodes
cases which I now must do on our Dako stainer.
Does anyone have a solution to this problem.  Evidently the Ultraview
detection kit stains plasma cells (confirmed by a Ventana rep.) Does any
one have a protocol that stops this staining?
