RE: [Histonet] Staining for heavy metals

From:"Horn, Hazel V"

Colin we use a microwave copper stain that is excellent from American
Master Tech Scientific.   It's easy and quick and works wonderfully.

  Hi all - At present we use at our lab a Rubeanic acid stain for copper
in tissue, have also tried Rhodamine but have never been totally
convinced by either. I have seen references to a Timm's stain for heavy
metals. Does anyone use it?, is it any good? Would anyone be prepared to
send me a protocol.

Thanks Colin
