Dear Andrea,

  web pages:

Biological Stain Commission's (BSC) links:

By the way, while at BSC's site, check out the NSH day at their meeting in

"Stains file" (according to the BSC page "A useful collection of data dn
methods, from Bryan Llewellyn. Information about fixation and staining.")
staining methods:
(this site is worth spelunking for stains and protocols).

Subject: Special Stains
Hi Netters
Does anybody have a link to a page about special stains? I have been following 
the discussion about histotechnology/IHC being art or science, and it seems 
like we are forgetting the importance of standardising the 'old-fashioned' 
special stains. There is a lot of standardisation going on in IHC, but how 
about special stains? Any groups around? 
Some of the vendors are now offering sp. stain modules or reagents, but I am a 
bit concerned where they got the protocols from? And what happens when doing 
the stains at 60 degrees instead of room temp.? And how about disposal of 
various kinds of chemicals?
