Hi Peggy,
Quite a few of the researchers here like the PicroSirius Red stain
(PSR). I am not sure if that is one that is a stain that would help you.
I can send you the protocol.

To all:
Does anyone know if the collagen stain, Masson Trichrome, would
denatured or necrotic collagen from normal collagen in paraffin
sections?  One
of the researchers is looking for such a stain.  If not, is there
collagen stain that would?  (We routinely use MTC).
