MacNeals Tetracrhrome

From:Gayle Callis

MacNeals is a wonderful stain for undecalcified bone sections in PMMA,
either microtomed or ground sections. 

A word of caution here.  Make your own MacNeals staining solution,
commercial brands for undecalcified bone use are absolutely horrible, been
there, tried one, and wasted a lot of money!  Don't waste your time with
commercial solution. It is easy to make up. 

It is a stable solution, actually sat around lab for a few years and still
worked with great results.  Ostoid never looked better!!!
