Fwd: RE: Canada Balsam.
|From:||"Dr. Ian Montgomery" |
disagree, I've got a collection of very old slides that are as fresh now
as on the day of preparation. Just checked a section of cat tongue
stained with piccar, dated March 7 1897 and it's a simply stunning slide
that I doubt could be repeated today.

I avoid Canada Balsam like the
plague: it causes fading of most stains.

- Sitting this morning
mounting larvae using Canada balsam when I thought, am I alone, or do
other labs still use Canada balsam. For larvae etc it's still the best,
good penetration and the mounts last for years without loss of colour.
It's only interest but do other Histologists still use this mounting
media and for what.
