RE: GMS help

From:"Bartlett, Jeanine"

I have used the periodic acid and while it is satisfactory I personally find that my results are just a little better when I use the chromic acid instead.

Once again I find myself asking for special stain help from my fellow histonetters. This concerns the GMS stain. One of my techs tells me that a friend of hers from another hospital is using Periodic Acid instead of Chromic acid, and that there is a written procedure for it. I must admit that I have been out of the technical area for several years, and I had never heard of this. They are going to fax me a copy, but I thought I'd get some feedback from you guys first.
