I find the Pentachrome stain is better than trichrome for lung samples.

Subject: [Histonet] Specificity of Masson's trichrome

Does anyone have details regarding the specificity of the collagen
staining when tissues(especially lung)  are stained with Masson's
trichrome?  Is it possible that fibronectin and/or alpha smooth muscle
actin can also be stained?  We are trying to reconcile some IHC and in
vitro data.

Thanks so much!
