I have used microwave processing in the past and we
did put eosin in our isopropyl alcohols. It never
seemed to cause any problems except pink paraffin
sometimes! Definitely better than "naked" biopsies:)
Does anyone using a microwave tissue processor use
Eosin in their
Or know of a reason why it shouldn't be used?
We put eosin in our alcohol on our Tissue-Tek and have
our bxs being a nice pink.
We've just gotten our first Energy Beam microwave
tissue processor and
found it hard to embed "naked" bxs.
