RE: [Histonet] trichrome and immunohistochemistry

From:"Walters, Katherine S"

I have done this with DAB and Masson's trichrome.  The DAB turns
purplish, but once you get used to the color change, it works pretty
well.  I left out the hematoxylin, so I guess it's a bichrome.

As long as you use DAB as the chromogen you should be fine, have not
done the trichrome, but have ran other special stains on top of IHC such
as iron, AFB, etc.  I'm not sure how it will look, you might need to
modify the trichrome a bit.

Has anyone ever counterstained IHC with trichrome, or heard of it being
done?  Is this even possible? Thanks!
