I am new to the GMA process - we just started method development about a 
month ago.  Thank you for all of your replies regarding H&E staining.  I 
haven't had the opportunity to try any of them yet, but it's on my list 
for this week.

My new question is - I have been reading a lot regarding GMA and 
humidity.  We are currently using the JB-4 kit, and have not had any 
problems yet; however, it's still chilly here and the humidity hasn't 
kicked in yet.  I live in southern Indiana, the heart of humidity 
country in the summer and fall!!  And our building facilitators sometime 
have trouble controlling the humidity inside when it's 90 degrees with 
95% humidity outside.  What type of problems should I expect, and is 
there something that gives less humidity problems than JB-4? 

Thank you,
