James, I've seen this with other slides as well and it seems to be limited to specific lots. We will go many months without seeing it and then see it in a new lot. A different lot will be clean. I think it's just manufacturing variables.

Subject: [Histonet] True-Bond 380 slides

Recently we switched to a different slide, cost savings.   The slide is called True-Bond 380.  This morning we noticed that the slides had an eosin tint in the background.   We are going to play with it to get rid of it but has anybody else experienced this problem and how did they solve it?  We are going to extend the 95% after hematoxylin but just wanted other ideas.
