Does your Pneumoscystis carinii control stain properly or is it the diagnostic tissue and the control?

We use a GMS stain to demonstrate pneuomcyctis with successful results about 50% of the time. We have taken this procedure apart step by step, solution by solution and are at our wits end to determine the cause for failure. I can assure you that over the past 3 weeks, there is no variable that we have not tried. The ironic part is we never have a problem demonstrating fungi with the GMS, in fact, we never had any problems at all with other silver procedures.
Can anyone help with our hit and miss problem with pneumocystis?
