yes. since the organism creates an environment of caseous necrosis around itself and in which it lives, it is entirely possible that organisms could contaminate a coplin jar of stain and although non-viable, be left floating where they can adhere to subsequent slides.

Hello Netters...

Just curious to know how everybody does their ZN special stain?
We have been told it is not recomended to perform this stain in a coplin jar, that the slides should be stained individually to avoid possible cross contamination from the control slide. Is this a proven fact ?
