RE: [Histonet] stain that binds mercury


I found a reference for Voight's modification of the Timm silver sulfide method that is specific for mercury. (Acta Histochem.  14:315, 1962).
I found the reference in Lillie's Histopathologic Technic and Practical Histochemistry, Third Edition 1965.  An oldie but a goodie.  Good luck.

Subject: [Histonet] stain that binds mercury

Hi everyone,

We have an investigator here that is interested in finding a stain that 
will localize mercury in sections of cicadas. Does anyone know of anything 
that will bind mercury in tissues? This is all the information I have at 
this point.

Thank you for your help and expertise,
