Weigert Hematoxylin
« on: November 29, 2013, 02:41:34 PM »
     

    The other day I was posed with the question "Why is Weigert Hematoxylin not used in routine H&E staining?"

  Any help? THANX

Because blue and red is more beautiful.
Because hemalaun must not be prepared daily and can be used for several days (or more).
Hemalaun is more tolerant with water-carry over, can be used more simply as processive stain.
Because nuclear details are usually seen much better.
Because 100 year practise has shown.
