I have probably asked this before but when performing the PAS stain with and without diastase I have been told you can charge two 88313's.   When performing the colloidal iron stain the place we send it to also charges us for two stains, one with omitting the colloidal iron solution.   I understand the principle in determining whether the Prussian blue staining is from  the acid mucopolysaccharides or hemosiderin.  How are others charging for this stain if they run two slides?    And do you agree that the PAS with and without can be charged twice?
