RE: [Histonet] modified Gomori stain

From:"Hofecker, Jennifer L"

Hi there.
I have two suggestions for you. The first would be to check the pH of
your Gomori trichrome solution. Strange things happen to muscles when
the pH strays from 3.4! The second suggestion would be to just skip the
acid differentiation, provided the sections are green when they come out
of the stain.  I did that once, accidentally, and the pathologist was
able to interpret the slides. If the sections are predominately red
after the staining step, check the pH.  Please let me know if you need
any further information.
Good Luck!
