RE: [Histonet] H & E staining on frozen sections

From:Tony Henwood

Alternatively, you could try Kiernan's Chromoxane cyanine R. This solution
stains in 3 minutes and gives a H&E picture. It is an acidic aqueous
solution containing Chromoxane cyanine R (CI 43820) and ferric chloride.
Reference in his book.

Another technique is to do a Diff quik on ethanol fixed frozen sections.
This will also give a H&E like picture.

H&E is always a 2 step stain (Hematoxylin in one step, Eosin in another,
with lots of other solutions between).

Any chance you were doing a Giemsa? Or a Paragon - A basic fuchsin/toluidine
blue combination? These are both one step.

Dear histonetters,
Long time ago I used a H&E stain solution on frozen sections. I remember
it's a one step staining. But I couldn't find it now. Does anybody know
where I can order it? 
Thanks in advance!\
