In our lab we do H&E. If H. pylori is a strong suspect but can't be seen by
H&E we do immuno. Immuno is good because the organism shows up very clearly
with no background or non-specific staining problems that you see in silver

Hello Histonetters!

I am looking for an alternate stain for H Pylori.  We
have tried the Warthin-Starry, and the Steiner, but
have found them to be unreliable at times.  Is there
anyone out there with another method that is not done
by IHC?
