Re: Iron stain problem
|From:||rudy gutierrez <IMEBRUDY@inreach.com> (by way of histonet)|
Finally had a chance to respond to some of my email. Read
your inquiry on the Histonet in regards to the G. Iron Stain procedure. I
had a customer many years ago have the same problem. The problem resulted
in the customer obtaining from a tissue that was subjected to B*5 fixative
treatment prior to grossing and further processing in formalin. I also
had a customer that obtained samples from decalcified tissue.
I would strongly suggest you make sure there is no
pre-treatments in a primary fixing agent. Lastly, once in a great while
the solutions; Potassium Ferrocyanide and HCL might be from the same origin.
You very well might have to solutions that are of the same solution or a
weaker solution. Might want to just take a last review of the solutions.
Good Luck with your stain
