Hi All,


I have received excellent responses from Histonet in the past so thought I
would try this out on you all. 


I am coating tissue culture plates with collagen and trying to demonstrate
complete coverage. Other than an antibody to collagen I , is there a simple
stain I could apply that would demonstrate coverage without dissolving the
collagen. Collagen seems to dissolve in methanol which seems to be a
component of some of the basic protein stains. Should I fix before staining?

Thanks for your help. Much appreciated.
