Re: [Histonet] help with elastic staining

From:Jennifer MacDonald

The iron hematoxylin used for an elastic stain is usually Verhoeff.  This is alcoholic hematoxylin (5%), ferric chloride (10%) and Lugol iodine.  This is prepared fresh and the solutions are added in the order given.  The differentiating solution is 2% ferric chloride.
