I changed over to the Surgipath H&E "system" and after working out
timing and water issues, I resolved the "blue haze" problem by
increasing the time in the DEFINE to 45 seconds and I have no blue haze.
You might have to tinker with the DEFINE and BLUE BUFFER times to
optimize the stain.  All in all - an excellent, clear, sharp,
pathologist-pleasing stain.  And - as we all know - "a happy pathologist
is a wondrous thing"!
