[Histonet] Mast cell with toluidine blue

From:Gayle Callis

We prefer to use a toluidine blue method that does not give any overall
bluish purple background (annoying!) to the other tissue elements, just the
mast cells stain.   Try Churukian Schenk method from J of Histotechnology -
it is a delight, easy to make up and and works on decalcified bone also.
