Hello & Happy New Year!
Regarding a histonet e-mail question about who developed CAT Hematoxylin. Here is the clarification. There were actually three histologists involved with the development. While I was working at Biocare, Chuck Churukian gave me the modification for Mayer's Hematoxylin, I came up with the proprietary ingredient for stabalization & David Tacha from Biocare suggested the pH portion. Thus the CAT (Churukian-Allison-Tacha) I started my research in 2001 & officially released it in 2002 at the NSH meeting. David & I developed it to be used for IHC, H&E's & SS. I was the person who actually made-up the hematoxylin from A-Z. & learned alot about bulk manufacturing & pH.
Happy New Year,
