Hello histonetters!!

I am doing a routine Congo Red stain for Amyloid deposits, but has anyone out 
there ever heard of a Potassium Permanganate 1% dip to bleach and distinguish 
between primary and secondary amyloid??? This may be an old procedure.  Any 
help would be greatly appreciated!!  Please e-mail me directly at

Thanks all!
