I thought I was the only histology lab that got stuck staining bone marrow smears.
I started with staining smears manually, then went to the hematek and finally discovered the Wescor stainer. The wescor stainer has really brought consistency to this area. The only potential problem is you have to keep up the maintenance, which is not extensive. I highly recommend the wescor and it is very nicely priced.

Hi Histonetters, do any of you out there stain the peripheral, aspirate and touch prep slides of bone marrows in the histo lab?  If you do, do any of you use an automated stainer and if so, what kind of stainers are being used?  I have quotes for a Wescor Aeorspray Stat Slide stainer, a QuickSlide Plus Automated stainer and a Hematek 2000.  If anyone has had experience good or bad for any of these stainers I would love to get your feedback.
