Re: One step trichrome

From:Victor Tobias <>


Thanks for the kind words, but I don't deserve the credit for following
instructions. I have and always will advocate the One Step Trichrome as
outlined in the AFIP 3rd edition. I have never modified it and have find the
stain to produce consistent results. What is really nice is that by
substituting the Aniline Blue for the Light Green, you have now replaced the
Masson's Trichrome. If you are in a large facility such as I am currently, with
many pathologists, this stain will allow you to accommodate every whim.
