Bowie's pepsin stain usually stains chief cells very well.

Hi all
We are looking at the gastric mucosa of the Cape Mole Rat and can not
distinguish chief cells on the basis of morphology. There seem to be
more parietal cells and we can not be sure of the chief cells. Is there
a stain we can use to distinguish between these to cell types as the
Hematoxylin & Eosin stain is not making this obvious.
