Leber (1860) recommends using a 1% ferric chloride solution for 5 minutes, followed by a rinse and a 5% potassium ferrocyanide solution for 2-3 minutes for the delineation of cells outlines, that I think could work for what you need.

  Does anyone know of a procedure for staining cell membranes (also called cell boundaries) in tissue sections so that the individual cells are clearly outlined when viewed with the light microscope? I knew of a couple such techniques many years ago but cannot find much on the subject currently.
