AW: [Histonet] Toluidine blue and H&E

Some time ago I tried toluidinblue alone on skin to demonstrate mastcells.
It works fine, and I think (if this is your purpose) eosin would rather
disturb the clear result (nuclei blue, mastcellgranula red).
0,1% Toluidinblue in 1% acetic acid 5 min

Bob Richmond asks: "I hope somebody does try this and report back to us

I'll let you know how it goes - the pathologist is not working on gastric
biopsies but rather prefers toluidine blue to H&E for certain derm cases.
We're trying to give him both.  :)
