RE: [Histonet] Staining for Helicobacter pylori

From:Tom McNemar

We have been doing them by IHC for the last few years.  Overkill, I know.
The paths never like the Giemsa and we had so much trouble with the
Warthin-Starry (consistency, repeats, etc) that I just switched to IHC.
Works every time.

We use the Wharton Stary method.... you can also use an Alcian Yellow
Stain... there's another called the Toluidine Method I believe...

Hope this helps...
