We use what we call a modified Genta. That is a modified Steiner if done manually. Because we have the Artisan and DAKO didn't have a Genta kit, I tried using the Warthin Starry and adding the Alcian blue and H&E manually and it worked fine. So we have not renamed it a modified Warthin Starry! But the H. pylori are very visible as well as the mucin and the morphology. J
