Hi all,

Have just completed a series of stains using the Modified Bielschowsky
stain for neurofibrillary tangles, with great results.  I was wondering if
anyone out there in histo-land knows of the significance of the 'evaporated
ammonia' that is called for in the protocol?  Have tried using just
standard conc. ammonia, but results were a bit dubious (may have just been
the fickle nature of the silver stain).  Not urgent, but any info would be
