FW: [Histonet] Azur B

From:"Brett, Lawrence"

Yes we use Azure B regularly as a counterstain for S100 or other
immunocytochemistry for melanoma.
Use a simple 1% aqueous solution of Azure B for 5 minutes after the immuno,
it turns the melanin green, making a nice contrast to the brown immunostain.
We don't usually counterstain it, you may have to stain with haematoxylin
first.

HAs anyone used Azur(e) B for a melanin stain.  I read the other day that
you
can use Azur B to stain malanin a green-blue, but everything else I read
only
says it is used for plant tissue.  If anyone has used it for melanin, how
does
it work and what would be the best counterstain.  Thanks.
