     There is a reason that every manual with an elastic procedure says
that the stain should be made up fresh. My guess is that the company is
trying to prolong the shelf life by removing or reducing either the iodine
or ferric chloride. Doing this will prevent the hematoxylin from turning
black. If it don't work on the machine, you should do it by hand. The
results will be MUCH better. And this stain is not that difficult.
