Last time we stained a gastric biopsy with Giemsa. We found cells with
green-blue acid mucin. I have never seen this before. It looks like the
mucins in the movat-stain. Can anyone tell me the theoretical background
about this? 

We do the Giemsa on the Ventana-stainer, with following differentiation in
A.d. with a few drops glacial acetic acid.


Thank you
