Thanks Bob. Somebody else mentioned her name also so I'll be sure to reach
out to her.

THE expert on the Movat pentachrome stain is Akemi Allison, a very senior
histotechnologist who's published about it. I can't remember if she's on
Histonet, but you can contact her on Facebook - I hear from her there quite

I'm not personally familiar with the stain, but I don't think either of
those substitutions will work. You need to find out more about saffron
before you work with it, because it's so expensive.
