Remove precipitate from stained slides

Recommended Posts


A marvelous hematologist shared her procedure for using Hema-Tek's stain reagents to perform a manual stain.  The stain is beautiful, but I'm staining in Coplin jars, and by the end of a large batch of slides, I ended up with LOTS of precipitate on the slides.  Does anyone have a way to remove precipitate from Wright's-stained slides?  (I think next time I'll be sure to change the rinse reagent more often)

If you fold up a piece of roll you can 'wipe' the top of the stain before staining to remove the gold top - it gives you cleaner slides.
