[Histonet] Special Stainers Becky Johnson

Hi Becky,
I use a Ventana stainer and I'll pass along a few hints that we have
learned. For silver stains we use only Superfrost plus slides. I have
tried some of the others but the staining quality was not adequate. We
also leave our slides in the oven (72C) for 1/2 hour. We use the
cleaning kit after every run.
I don't know if you have tried any of these hints but if not, I hope
they help.

I need to know what everyone is using for Special Stainers?  I now have
Ventana special stainer. Have had the same machine for several years
with maintance(cleaning)  done on it daily, monthly and PM.  Just not
real happy with the service and inconsistent staining with the silver
stains.  Thanks for all your info.
