Hi All,
We have a Leica Autostainer XL that we do all our routine HE slides on.
The section on the upper end of the slide is often unevenly stained. We
have tried many things to improve the situation including; Ensuring wash
tubs are flowing correctly and  Increasing dips at each staining tub. If
we "use" the same program but do it by hand the problem goes away. Any
suggestion that may help would be most welcome.
