I queried our histology section and was told they use Alcian yellow.  They used to use Steiner but it got too expensive.

Subject: [Histonet] Staining for Helicobacter

Hi, Histonetters! I'm Don Skaggs.  You might remember me from such 
Histology News articles as "How to Not Get Asphyxiated" and "Honey, I 
Shrunk the Biopsy".  

Anyway, I have another question from a lab and wanted to give an 
intelligent answer, so I thought I'd ask you guys:  They are looking for 
a stain for Helicobacter; they have tried a Wright-Giemsa, a Diff-Quick 
(Isn't that sort of the same thing?) and something else called a "Little 
Quicker", but to no avail.  Any Ideas?  

Thanks in advance,

Don Skaggs
