I use Movat's Pentachrome as a batch stain for elastic fibers.  I get the
kit from Polyscientific and reuse many of the reagents.

Good morning everyone,
Is there any elastic stain thats reliable for batch staining, that still
give the domonstration of fine/course of a good  VVG?  Also has anyone  the
potassium permanganate/oxalic acid prior to the elastic working solution to
achieve better staining of elastic fibers?  Any opinions on whether using
sodium thiosulfate or 95% alcohol is better for removing the iodine?
