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,
