Hello All,

One of my pathologists asked the following question.  "Does inking
tissue effect special staining or IHC results?"  I replied that I had
never heard of this and not to my knowledge.  I thought that if the
chromagen was the same color of the dye then there could be some
difficulty in deciphering between the two.  Therefore, I am wondering if
anyone has experienced a problem.
