Coni Forney BS MT, HT(ASCP) at the USAF Medical Center at Wright Patterson 
AFB [that's Air Force Base, not acid fast bacilli, folks] in Ohio is 
>>looking for a quick and easy (ha ha) but excellent stain for h. pylori.<<


This elderly pathologist continues to hold that the very simple toluidine 
blue or Giemsa stain is as good as the silver stain - or at least that nobody 
has done a study (as far as I know) to show that it's inferior.

See my Web site for a formal procedure:
