Rowley biochemical sells a kit for Movat's. you can get the whole kit or
individual reagents. WE make our own ferric chloride, alcian blue and
alcoholic hematoxylin then but the rest. They send the procedure aas well.

Subject: Re: [Histonet] Movats Trichrome
I can be found on Members Only webpage/NSH website and as of September,
retired. However the Movats pentachrome, rather than trichrome, was the
protocol from Sheehan and Hrapchak, Theory and Practice of Histotechnology,
2nd edition. I did this over 20 years ago, but not in recent years. I know
there are modified and shorter methods than the one I used, and I did it on
methyl methacrylate embedded bone, ground sections.
I did the protocol from Sheehan and Hrapchak as theirs was modified for
methyl methacrylate plastic embedded bone but do not have this on a computer
file. If you have the textbook, it will be there. I have seen messages
(in Archives) which dealt with finding reagents, in particular, Safran du
Gatinas or saffron which can be purchases in a grocery store. As for where
to buy some of the dyes, I would be outdated for sources since the stain has
not been done for many years. We did make our staining reagents in house,
but you may get lucky finding a staining kit with Poly Scientific or
Google Bryan Llewellyn's Stains File website for two Movats protocols which
should work very well for you, one that uses the saffron from a grocery
store. A great website filled with information. I believe that Histo
Logic also has a modified Movats publication.
Good luck on your staining.
