[Histonet] Superfrost Plus slides BENCHMARK EXPLANATION

 If you are talking about the slides that have red control border it is
because of the paint. The painted bordr on the Erie slides is painted on the
back of the slide, not the top. The Benchmark was having problems with
reagent pooling and not rinsing because of this "built-up" paint border.
Here is the fisher site that has the slides.
Notice how they are listed for automatic stainers and manual staining.

Anyone know why only the Erie slides work on the Ventana?
