Re: RE:stain for Iron

From:David Pereira <>

According to Lillie [ Histopathologic Technic and Practical Histochemistry, 4th edit, pp. 488 ] acid hematin does not give a positive Prussian blue or Turnbull's reaction. It is difficult to extract but that is the probably the best way to demonstrate or distinguish it from other pigments.
If you don't have Lillie & Fullmer's book let me know and I'll send you the part on acid hematins.
