Hello everyone,
I teach a histology class and often have the students make their own 
I notice that my very old histology slides have very bright red pulp and 
dark white pulp. I assume they were prepared using H&E staining. I have 
tried but the red is never as bright as the old slides; the hematoxylin 
part is fine however. I use eosin in 70% EtOH.
Any suggestions as to how I can get the red pulp red? 
Thanks, I like perusing the topics.
