Hi Leslie,

I have attached our current log. You can augment it based off the solutions you are using and how many shifts you have. We have two stainers and each has their own log. Our stainers are connected to running water thus the drain lines that need cleaning. If you have any questions reach out anytime. Good luck!

Hi all,

We recently acquired a second H&E stainer and are working up a maintenance log. Looking for input from others who have already tackled this issue!

  *   Do you have a log for EACH instrument or one combined log?
  *   Do you have a space for listing reagent lots?
  *   What is your rotation schedule for changing reagents?
  *   Other tips and tricks are always appreciated!
