Hi All,
  Is there any specific reason why one iron stain kit I have recommends that you air-dry the bone marrow and blood smears after the Fe stain is completed and then coverslip them while other kits don't mention that at all.  I have always stained my smears then dehydrate, clear and coverslip them like the tissue slides (at the end). Ergo Fe stain, rinse, paragon, rinse, 95% Alc, 100% Alc, xylene and coverslip.
