Fwd: [Histonet] Mast Cells Stain

From:"Atoska S. Gentry"

Hello, we too use Toluidine Blue Stain (TBO) for mast cells. After 
deparaffinization & hydrating, stain in 0.1% Toluidine Blue Stain for 10 
seconds - 1 minute depending on stain (until tissue is medium blue in 
color). 10 seconds works best for us. After staining rinse in distilled 
water, dehydrate, clear, & mount. Best wishes. Atoska
