RE: osteoid stain

From:"Montague, Donna C"

Osteoid seams can be seen in H & E stain but Masson's Trichrome, Safranin
O/Fast Green and other Trichrome staining techniques can highlight the
osteoid areas in bone. Depends on what colors the observer wishes to view.

Regarding muscle fiber types, PTAH is beautiful for striated muscle.

Hi fellow histonetters,

Actually, I have 2 questions:

1. What are you using to stain osteoids?

2. Do you know if there is a method to differentiate muscle fiber type for 
FFPE equine?

Thanks as always
