Snook's Reticulum Stain
Thanks for all the information you sent me on Number of Techs vs. Number of
We have recently changed for doing the Wilder's Retic to the Snook's.
For some reason we're noticing our liver biopsies washing after the silver
solution...usually in the gold chloride.
Has anyone else seen this particular problem when staining with the Snook's
procedure? We do not put the sections on "plus" slides because of the
precipitate that forms. We have tried leaving the freshly cut sections in
the oven for 30 minutes.
Also, when the Snook's calls for fresh ammonia, how fresh should it be?
We purchase the ammonia in 500 ml bottles. The smaller size is much more
expensive and we do this stain almost every day.
We would appreciate any tips you could send our way.
