Hi Liz

I do Goldner routinely and there is an improvement in colour after
postfixation with bouin´s.
Muscle for example tends to bee greenish without bouin. After posttfixation
it turns out red. Every trichrome (except van Gieson) will profit from
postfixation with Bouin´s. I postfix at room temperature for at least two
hours but most often over night (i have no time pressure)

Best would be to fix in bouin only (did try that with fozens) but in routine
it is not always possible and it is said that ihc will not work after bouin
and dna is rouined ...

sorry for bad english and best wishes
