Eosin and eosinophilic should not be merged because eosin is a stain used for histology and eosinophilic is a term used for multiple diagnoses in histopathology. they are not the same subject and merging them would be a dis-service. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 02:33, 18 October 2007 (UTC)
Eosin and eosinophilic should be merged. Eosin is a stain used for histology. Eosinophilic just means "liking eosin" i.e. something that is stained well by eosin. Jon salisbury (talk) 15:16, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
Consistency should be the primary criterion. If you merge eosin and eosinophilic, then should not basophil and basophilic be merged, ad infinitum?Medic4 (talk) 14:17, 28 August 2008 (UTC)
