Toluidine Blue will stain mast cells nicely.

Subject: [Histonet] stain for mast cells

We have been using an alcian blue stain at pH 0.4 to demonstrate mast
cells. Our pathologist would like to use a giemsa stain for mast cells.
If someone knows a good stain for mast cells could you let me know.
Either a giemsa stain or any other type would be appreciated.
