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,
