using this stain for more than 30 years and it works beautifully.
Sodium borate. = 0.8g
Distilled water. = 100ml
Dissolve, then add in order
Toluidine blue. = 0.8g
Dissolve, then filter into a bottle.
Stain sections at room temperature until the desired depth of staining is
obtained (few minutes or more). Wash in running tap water, air dry and
mount in immersion oil or a synthetic mountant. The stain gives a very
pleasing result of varying shades of blue.
