Thought Haematoxylin solution had organic chemicals in it; it does, doesn't
it? Maybe your right, maybe we don't need to know what goes into to things
anymore; but maybe innovation may be the casualty.

I'm staggered when asking Band 7 specialist practitioners if they know
what's in something to find they haven't got a clue. That's all disciplines
not just Histology, Pharmacists still seem to know what's in their 

Do people still make up Retic solution or is that bought in too?

No such thang as "organic" Haemalum....lol
I personally am damn glad those horrible days of pontificating Histologists 
are over.
I recall a meeting with Eric Wallington ( A God to us UK Histologists) when 
I was giving a talk about MOVING on...
I presented DPX as a BEST mounting cement. That man dissed me. massive!
He buried me, to the amusement of the audience..." nothing can replace 
Canada Balsam"
However, I have been proved right.
