We recently had what we think was a contaminated dispenser of HP from VMS. It had brown particulate matter scattered over the slide which the docs said was not bugs. Received a new dispenser from VMS and have had no problem since.

Subject: [Histonet] Background staining on H pylori
I'm getting a lot of background staining on my HP's. We use a Ventana BenchmarkXT with ultraView DAB. The problem seems to be escalating of late, and I'm not sure why. We use Hollande's on our GI biopsies, and run them on a shorter run. Nothing has changed in the processing of the specimens, or the IHC procedure. The antibody dispenser is a newer lot, but not brand new, as we get the larger size due to the high volume of HP's we run. Any ideas?
