RE: [Histonet] Good Cresyl Violet Recipe

From:"Lee & Peggy Wenk"

Does the post-doc mean cresyl violet acetate, formerly known at cresyl echt
violet? What is the post-doc staining for? Nissl bodies? Pneumocystis?
Nuclei? Mast cell granules? That would determine the exact recipe and

Sorry - asking for a recipe for a dye is like asking - does anyone have a
hematoxylin recipe, to which people will say, do you want blue or black
nuclei (Mayer or Gill hematoxylin vs. Weigert)? Do you want to to stain
elastin (VVG)? Do you want to stain myelin (Weil)? All these stain with
hematoxylin, but each one has a different procedure to make up the
hematoxylin stain, and to use it. Same with your cresyl violet.

Sorry, need a little bit more information before we can help.
