Hi Histonet,

I am performing the trichrome stain on cardiac tissue. The procedure calls
for Weigert's iron hematoxylin stain or equivalent. Would Harris
hematoxylin work as well. It's what I have readily available at the lab.

The instructions for preparing the Weigert stain involves mixing fresh
solutions from two stock solutions - but the staining process of all the
slides will take weeks. How long does the solution stay "fresh?"
