We are wondering what other labs are doing to control the humidity while IHC
stains are being performed. We currently place wet towels and a small weigh
boat with water in our Autostainer to help prevent our slides from drying
out but that seems to not be enough, they still tend to dry out and produce
background staining. What should the humidity level be at? Any help would be
