Hi Judy,

We order an Elastic Tissue Stain Kit from Sigma.  It
works great!  Here's the information:

    Sigma Diagnostic (800)325-3010
    Elastic Stain Kit
    Cat. No. HT25-A
    Price $75.00

The kit includes:  Hematoxylin Alcoholic 2x 200 mL
                   Ferric Chloride          125 mL
                   Weigert's Iodine         180 mL
                   Van Gieson Solution      250 mL

Hope this helps, good luck,
Michelle Lowe
