For several years I have been impressed with the need for a method of staining sections of tissue and bacteriologic smears in large quantities. This need is felt particularly in large laboratories where tissue sections are stained for class work, where serial sections are prepared as in departments of histology, pathology and embryology in medical schools, in the laboratories of tuberculosis sanatoriums, and in the larger public health laboratories where staining is carried on extensively.
Prompted by this need, I have designed the dish described here, believing that it will fulfil the need and demand for an article of this nature in that it modifies present staining methods to such an extent that rapid, efficient and economical staining can be carried out to a degree previously impossible with the older methods.
The entire apparatus is constructed in three parts; the support, outside container, and slide rack. The
