It appears, from a research paper I was reading, that a 1% solution of uvitex 2b added to eosin will cause fungus to fluoresce under uv light. 

I haven't performed it, however it could be as quick as an H&E stain. Looks promising.

Now we are looking for a fast and inexpensive stain for fungus on our frozen sections. Fast is the operative word because we have to report diagnoses back to ORs in a 20 minute timeperiod. Any ideas to help? Thanks!
