glucose reference

From:"Haines, Ashley N."

Hi all,

I know that glucose is highly soluble and is typically washed out of tissue
sections, unless it is being stored in the form of glycogen which is well
preserved.  However, I can't seem to find a reference that states this.
Specifically: that glucose is highly soluble for the purposes of histology
and therefore difficult to visualize via staining.  I've checked the 5
different histology reference books I have here in the lab.  If anybody can
help I'd greatly appreciate it...  Thanks!
