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

> Hi, I work in a Surgical Pathology frozen section lab outside the OR rooms. Normally we only perform an H&E on the frozens. 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!
