We wash after Schiff's for 10 minutes in regular temp tap water. Don't know if that helps or not......

Subject: [Histonet] PAS for basement membrane
I'm having a problem with my PAS stain. My pathologist says that glycogen and fungus stain beautifully but basement membranes are pale. We are using 0.5% periodic acid for 10 minutes and schiff's for 25 minutes followed by 5 min rinse in warm/hot water. Any thoughts? Thank you in advance!
