RE: [Histonet] progressive H&E staining using Gills

Richard Allen 7211 Hematoxylin doesn't stain mucin blue, and is a 
beautiful all around nuclear stain.    I'm sure they'll send you a sample.

RE: [Histonet] progressive H&E staining using Gills


Were you using Harris before? If so, the difference is that Gill
formulations stain the mucin of goblet cells quite a dark blue and many GI
docs don't like that look. They can get used to it though as ours did at
Sacred Heart Medical Center. Hope this helps.

Subject: [Histonet] progressive H&E staining using Gills

We just switched our H&E stain to a progressive stain using Gill II
hematoxylin. Our derm guys love it, but now our GI docs are screaming 
murder. Does anyone have suggestions for a protocol that will make both
'relatively happy'?? Thanks for letting me pick your brains again!!!
