Hi histo world..


I hate to be stupid, but if you'd have dealt with the cable TV company
today like I did....your mind would be blank too....But now I'm back to
work, after wasting 5 hours and I STILL don't have internet, phone or
TV.  I don't think I can handle one more day of this...I'm going through


So, here goes:


I have 2 bone marrow smears.

I have an iron control that I've run down to water.

I have to put BOTH of them in Methanol (the dry smear AND the wet
control) . . before I air dry and then put in heated Ferrocyanide?


I have the procedure here, but it doesn't state BOTH slides- the
procedure makes me believe that I don't put both slides in methanol . .
. and I haven't done this stain in about 3 years, so I'm a little rusty


Thank you for helping out a forgetful (and irritated!) tech!
