Sorry, we don't have extra blocks to share. We use the alcian yellow
technique that we make up. Components are same as what is purchased. We
like it a lot and most of our pathologists also like it. The only complaint
we have had is that if the Helicobacter is in the glands, they are hard to
see, but if they are on the surface, they show up fine

Hope this helps.
