Re: H. pylori stains

From:Phil Bergin

Hi Rachel

There are a couple of posts on pylori stains in the archives one:
    stains for Helicobacter pylori 3.5K Aug 9, 2000

has an article reference comparing :  A comparison of staining methods for
Helicobacter pylori. Kim
Rhatigan-Drexler, MA, HTL (ASCP), histology supervisor, SUNY. In Histo-Logic,
April first, 1999.
This study examined a single gastric biopsy specimen, stained with six
methods: Giemsa, Gimenez' carbol fuchsin-malachite green, a Dieterle
microwave method, cresyl echt violet, Sayeed's methylene
blue-PAS-hematoxylin, and toluidine blue-Alcian yellow. Nice photomicrographs
illustrate each stain.

Although I'd be interested in any more, especially if they also stain H.felis
and work in mice.  Good luck and hope it helps.
