Re: Alzeheimers stain
What you may be looking for is a MODIFIED BIELSOWSKY (GARVEY) SILVER stain. It is a silver stain and as such is reasonably fiddly, but part of the heating of the silver solution is performed in the microwave. If done well it demonstrates both plaques and tangles in Alzheimer's brains. Methods can be found in most histology text books, in the nervous tissue section.

Cheers, Cath
