Staining of fungi

From:Kathrin Priess

Dear all,

I wonder if anyone could help with information on how to stain fungi
that are embedded in epoxy resin. Let me precise, my request belongs to
the field of environmental science not to the one of medical science. Of
course in literature a lot of staining techniques are described aiming
at staining polysaccharide in medical histology this might be the right
way. But if fungi are appearing together with algae that definitely
contain polysaccharides this will not work. I want to distinguish fungi
from algae, I thought of staining chitin. Could anybody help me with
further information?

Thank you,
