The H&E Stain – A Lesson on Consistency and Reproducibility
November 19 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST
Producing an H&E stained slide is a process and starts before the slide is loaded on a stainer or moved down through containers by hand. In this presentation, we will look at the process and learn the standardization necessary to have consistent and reproducible H &E slides.
1. Review the many factors that influence the quality of an H & E stain.
2. Describe how an H & E works.
3. Explain what makes a regressive H & E stain different from a progressive one.
4. Review what experts suggest in order to maintain consistent and reproducible H & E’s.
