We use Periodic acid Schiff with toludine blue- works great with
helicobacter felis (pylori too I guess).

Subject: [Histonet] Staining for Helicobacter

Hi, Histonetters! I'm Don Skaggs.  You might remember me from such 
Histology News articles as "How to Not Get Asphyxiated" and "Honey, I 
Shrunk the Biopsy".  

Anyway, I have another question from a lab and wanted to give an 
intelligent answer, so I thought I'd ask you guys:  They are looking for

a stain for Helicobacter; they have tried a Wright-Giemsa, a Diff-Quick 
(Isn't that sort of the same thing?) and something else called a "Little

Quicker", but to no avail.  Any Ideas?  

Thanks in advance,

Don Skaggs
