RE: [Histonet] Von Kossa staining

From:"Yaskovich, Ruth A (NIH/NIDCR)"

I have done Von-Kossa's on MMA thick about 200 microns or more specimens
whole not mounted on slides. Didn't remove any plastic just dropped the
specimens right into the silver solution and into a window in the sun. Got
wonderful positive results I would run a test slide on the GMA slide first
and see what you get. Good luck!
