Dear Netters,

What are you substituting for Hematoxylin?  I have narrowed it down to 2
I want to research; The Tango Stain, from Anatech and Phoenix Blue
Nuclear Stain, ordered from Fisher.  Is anyone familiar with either of
these stains?  If so, what are the positive/negatives about each one?
Are the results as comparable to the actual Hematoxylin dye?  I have
searched the net for images of a completed stain, to no avail.  Any
information will be greatly appreciated .


Thanks in advance.
