[Histonet] Colored paraffin

From:"Cheryl Crowder"

Several years ago we purchased colored paraffin from Polysciences.  We got 
both pink and amethyst (purple).  They had other colors.  The colors were 
great for small biopsies.  However, if we used colored cassettes (green, 
yellow, lavender, blue) the paraffin darkened and we could hardly see the 
tissue.  So it's a double edge sword.  If we used white cassettes all the 
time, the colored paraffin would be great.
