We have had this subject a few times before. I am still at a loss to understand the use of various "odd" stains for eosinophils.
They are so named because they like eosin. The easy way to stain them for contrast (contrast being the idea of staining) is to do a H&E with very light E. All the usual "E things" will be very lightly stained but with the eosinophils as avidly stained as with a normal length of staining.

        This method uses carbol chromotrope and works an absolute treat.

I am looking for Staining protocol (which works) for Eosinophils. I have tried several Congo Red methods but no luck. I am planning on doing Sirius Red, I have ordered the dye hopefully that will work but in the mean time if you have any suggestions please go for it I need all the help I can get. call me direct 650-855-6432 or email me.
Thank you,
