Thanks everyone for your replies on the staining of cryptosporidia.
Special thanks to Eric Kellar for the structural information - very interesting
I tried the Giemsa stain yesterday and it worked very well.
I used the Jenner stain for 3 mins. and the Giemsa stain for 45 mins.
The modified Kinyoun acid fast (decolorizing in sulfuric acid; counterstaining
with light green) gave good results. I will be trying the Alcian Blue stain
