[Histonet] Re:Tissue Dye



For routine FFPE sections give Cancer Diagnostics, Inc. a call at
1-877-846-5393 or visit their website: www.cancerdiagnostics.com.  They
have a good selection to choose from.  We use all their colors (green,
black, blue, red, yellow, orange) and are testing the new purple at this
time.  And yes, we have used all colors at once to ink complicated
specimens.  They look very sharp under the scope.   A quick dip in bouins
solution before sectioning and processing helps "set" the dye, a step this
lab has used for a long time.  I'm not sure it's necessary now.
They are a small company that offers a good product.

Good luck,

Morning all.
Can anyone tell me what they use to ink their tissues prior to processing?
We need to find a second and third tissue dye marker for our Pathologist
Assistant since our supplier has discontinued the ones we currently use.
suggestions are greatly appreciated.
