How to Create a High-Quality H&E Staining Protocol

The Hematoxylin and Eosin stain (H&E) is the most widely used stain for histopathological analysis.

Even though the H&E stain is a relatively simple stain to perform, there are a variety of factors that can interfere with the staining process. The maintenance of consistent, high-quality H&E stains is a fundamental requirement in any histopathology related project. Troubleshooting H&E stains can be difficult and frustrating. Our objective is to highlight some of the most common mistakes when choosing staining reagents and creating protocols. By minimizing them, we can deliver high quality slides in the shortest possible time to improve the outcome of translational research projects.
