I just read Freida Carson's notes on this method - she says that sections

	  Hi everyone,
	I would like to ask if anyone knows why amyloid on Congo Red stain
	birefringe as a orange-yellow color instead of apple green?  We are
	the same procedure that we have used for years.  Our procedure is a
	Modification.  If anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate hearing
from you.
	Thanks in advance.
