The tissue can still be blue even if the organism isn't there.

BTW, has anyone ever seen a Giemsa that doesn't stain? I can't really
imagine it.

"If the tissue is blue, it has worked, at least to the extent it needs
to have done for this purpose."

If it's not blue then it hasn't worked or the organism isn't there!
