RE: [Histonet] Stain for H. Pylori

From:"Nick Kirk"

We routinely do the Alcian Yellow/Tol blue for H.pylori and the Pathologists love it because of the better colour contrast of the blue bacteria on a yellow background, compared to say a Giemsa for instance (blue on blue).
The only problem at the moment is that production of Alcian Yellow has stopped apparently, so it's difficult if not impossible to order new stock of the stain.

Hello everyone,
 Has anyone done a Toluidine blue/Alcian yellow stain for H. Pylori? If so how do the Doctors like it?   Or, what other stains are you doing for that. I am trying to get away from the Genta!! Thanks in advance
