I imagine that you also ran a (+) control. If in the (+) control the organisms are well stained, just remove the coverslip, counterstain again and cover again.

Hi  Everyone,

The counter stain faded on my slides.  I've never had that happen before, but they were left overnight in zylene before being cover-slipped.  Can I go back and remove the cover slip,  which step would I back up to regain the staining?  Or, do I need to completely start the stain again?  We use the micro-wave method using a box kit from Sigma, the Accumate H2 100 .  I wonder if I need to re-make  the reducing solution, I was trying to see if I can save using another hydroquinone tablet?
