[Histonet] eosin and microwave tissue processors

Hi all,

Does anyone using a microwave tissue processor use Eosin in their alcohol?
Or know of a reason why it shouldn't be used?

We put eosin in our alcohol on our Tissue-Tek and have grown accustomed to
our bxs being a nice pink.

We've just gotten our first Energy Beam microwave tissue processor and have
found it hard to embed "naked" bxs.

Thanks in advance,
