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?
