[Histonet] sections fading

Talking of sections fading --
I am having trouble with my Grams fading.
We do Gram Twort on paraffin sections and they stain beautifully, but after
3 or 4 days the Gram positive bugs are no longer Gram positive.

Can anyone help?

Thanks and regards,     Laurie.

Imho, if one does not use Xylene that is low in sulphur, there is a good
chance that your eosin staining will fade, whether on frozen or Pwax
