We use an H&E (Richard Allan hematoxylin 1 and eosin Y) in order to count 
eosinophils in lungs.  Our sections are cut at 2 - 3 um to avoid so much 
cellular overlap,  then do a standard H&E stain with longer time in the 
eosin - 2 minutes instead of 1.  This time can be adjusted for your lab 
needs.  Nothing else has worked as well for us.  The biggest problem has 
been people not very well versed in eosinophil morphology in an H&E stained
