Any input is appreciated...
We're running HP with Biocares BC7 clone. The stain works well but maybe too well, it seems to stain a variety bacteria as opposed to just the HP rods... and sometimes it gets a little "dirty" with some staining in the mucus as well... I think the first thing we'll try to do is reduce some retrieval times... basically lighten things up but I really want to get other opinions... some of our pathologists think it's suboptimal with all the other staining but I want to hear what others see, are you all seeing other seemingly nonspecific staining too? Maybe it's just a bad control, suboptimal... maybe we can dilute it down an little, reduce times...

Really wish I could attach a picture, it's not terrible but not perfect.

Any thoughts?
