Alcian Blue stains for Barrett's disease
|From:||"Jennings-Siena, Debbie" |
I was wondering if anyone could suggest the appropriate Alcian Blue (and pH) stain for Barrett's disease of the esophagus. I have to admit that trying to decipher all of the mucins boggles my mind. There is a discussion going on here at Baylor as to whether Alcian Blue pH 2.5 or pH 1.0 is better and is it better with or without PAS counterstain. I know that some of you Histology Guru's will have the answer readily available. Thanks in advance for any and all help.
