Paul, have you tried Molecular Probes? Their Nissl stains work great, you just have to adj. [ ]'s to your needs. Super fast and easy, and very  bright specific results.

Does anyone routinely do Nissl staining on 30 to 40 micron frozen sections?
That's what the current project calls for, and I am finding that Nissl
methods designed for 6 to 8 micron sections don't work well on the thick
sections. They don't differentiate properly.  If anyone has a Nissl protocol
that works well on such thick sections, I would be grateful for any

Paul M.
