We used to use the traditional Congo Red for Amyloid, but our docs were not happy with the color whether purchased from a kit or manually made. We searched and tried "Amyloid Red" from Anatech, and have been doing it ever since. It is a brighter red color. Nothin' like a happy doc!

To all:

Would people please share their method for doing Congo Red staining?  (We are not interested in making up the reagents from powder form).
