Hi All!
One of my pathologists has a lung biopsy that she suspects crypto in,
however it did not stain with mucicarmine.  She read somewhere that
Fontana-Masson would stain a strain of crypto that was muci negative.... can
one of you biochemistry wizards explain to us what would be staining (if
indeed this is correct) and shed any light on any special problems or
techniques required here.
