RE: [Histonet] Azur B

From:"Rittman, Barry"

As far as I remember the sequence is methylene blue, azure B, azure A, azure 4, azure C, Bernthen's methylene violet and thionin. This is a progression and,  in general the dyes having greater metachromatic properties the closer that they are to thionin and pH dependent.

I use Azure B as a proteoglycan stain, it will stain different tissue
components depending on the ph.

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.
