Yes, it is in Bancroft, Manual for Histological Techniques on page 93 and
appears to be primarily for neuro diagnosis.  If you need the procedure let
me know.  Pam Marcum at Polysciences  8000-523-2575  ext 134

Hello histonetters!!

I am doing a routine Congo Red stain for Amyloid deposits, but has anyone
there ever heard of a Potassium Permanganate 1% dip to bleach and
between primary and secondary amyloid??? This may be an old procedure.  Any
help would be greatly appreciated!!  Please e-mail me directly at

Thanks all!
