[Histonet] Staining MMA flourochrome labeled sections

Hello all,

I have a modest number of bone-labeled specimens about ready to be
"fixed" and embedded in MMA. To make the most out of the data set, I
was hoping to stain (Toluidine Blue) the same sections for tissue
morphology that I was going to use for studying bone deposition. Are
there any problems, hinderances, or special techniques with using
T-Blue (or another preferential stain) on these tetracycline/calcein
labeled slides? Second, is alcoholic formalin now considered to be
superior to alcohol for retaining the tissue's morphology in plastic

Many thanks
