Good day Histonet,

I have seen in the past conversations regarding Ventana's H.Pylori antibody and how dirty looking the stain can be.  We have been using this antibody for several years now and have never really been happy with the quality.  We have tried the recommended methods to "clean up" the stain and still we run into repeating the stain and/or complaints from the pathologists.  We are considering using a different vendor but my concern is that my efforts will be a lateral move.  Is anyone using a product that produces a clean stain or is this something inherent to this antibody?  Are the pathologists happy with it and not just tolerating it?

Thank you for your suggestions,
