RE: mast cell staining


Thank you to all the replies regarding the staining of mast cells.  I do regulary use histochemical stains, including Toluidine Blue, Alcian Blue and Chloroacetate Esterase.  These are good for mature mast cells, but I was unsure if I was able to see immature mast cells, as the granules are not yet visible, hence my thought of using c-kit antibody.
