Dear Subscribers

I am staining cartilage using Millers elastic fibre stain, and while elastic
fibres are staining well, there is a lot of blue background staining which
makes thresholding for histoquantitation almost impossible. My sections are 30
micron paraffin embedded. I am also oxidising with 0.5% aqueous potassium
permanaganate and bleaching with 2% oxalic acid.

Any suggestings for reducing this background staining would be greatly

Kind regards,
