We tried the Surgipath H/E and had a similar experience.  We went back to what we had been using.  Since then I've been told that more water rinses or a different Clarifier type reagent may fix this problem, but I haven't had time or a good reason to give it another try.

Howdy all,

   I have just changed over to Surgi Path's H & E system.  With the latest fear of running out of hematoxylin and all my Pathologist wanted us to change over.  Its a great stain but we have a bad "haze"  in the background.  It is not hurting the tissue or DX at all, but to ME it looks awful.  Is there anyone else out there using this?   We are not using positive charged slides or anything added to my water bath.  Any suggestions????  Thanks in advance
