Re: [Histonet] fibrin stain

From:Paul Bradbury

Hi Fred,

One of the best ways to show amniotic fluid embolism is to demonstrate 
the fetal epitheial cells in the capillaries of the materal lungs 
(assuming that the mother is deceased and that lung tissue is 
available). A good method for this is the Lendrum phloxine tartrazine, 
the fetal cells appear a brilliant red on a yellow background with blue 
nuclei. The method is included in most histology texts, probably listed 
under methods for demonstrating acidophilic viral inclusion bodies.

If you can't find the method, I can let you have it.
