Re: GMS help
Hi Noreen, I haven't read all the responses yet but it seems everyone is
telling you that Periodic Acid is okay due to their experience. If you
haven't been told an article to site for, say, a procedure manuel yet,
here's one: Journal of Histochemistry June 1999. It sited that it's
inconsistant for histoplasma capsulatum but if you increase the
concentration or time in solution, you may be able to counter that.
Honestly, we looked at it in our lab and one of our pathologists said he
can't remember the last time we've had a case of it but the micro report
wouldn't let them miss it.
Hope that helps- Cheryl Powell, BS, HTL
