[Histonet] Counterstain on Ventana stainers

I use Biocare's CAT hematoxylin mixed 50/50 with distilled water for one minute followed by a TBS-T rinse on my Lab Vision Autostainer 360.  It seems to do a pretty good job.

Is anyone using a non-Ventana hematoxylin counterstain on their
immunostainers?  If so, what works best for you in terms of intensity
and stability.  Just looking at a bit of cost-cutting...
Thank you for your time!
