 The Rhodamine stain is what we use (usually about once every 18 months),
along with bought controls that we buy 10 at a time from Histology Control
Systems.   -Janet

Subject: [Histonet] Stain and pos control for copper

I wonder if anyone with experience of copper stains can help me. We very
rarely get asked to demonstrate copper and I know of only one positive
of Wilson's disease in 15 years which we were able to use as a pos
We have just had another request. There was barely any control tissue
and both the test and control was neg. when stained with rhodanine. Two
questions - is rhodanine the best stain, and what can we use for a pos.
All ideas gratefully received!
