[Histonet] Brucella staining

From:Philip Oshel


I've got a project coming in to look at bacteria in the SEM. No 
problem, I do that routinely. But, it seems to me that this group 
would be better off sectioning their samples and staining the 
Except they claim the bugs won't stain.
This is for Brucella melitensis in mouse tails.
Anyone have a good stain for these bacteria? The stain would be done 
on sections.
Calcified or decalified better? I don't think that matters to the 
study, but it might to the staining.
