Re: [Histonet] Question concerning stain production

From:"Katri Tuomala"

Hi Poyan,
Histology text books all give staining methods and how to make the reagents 
for most usual stains.
Try this web site for instant information, if you don't have an access to a 
text book. You should try and get one or more.
Good luck!
