Hi all
I am looking to demonstrate Merkel cells in skin. I can not find any
reference in my textbooks to their demonstration although I have not
used the internet.  Also I have tried silver stains for demoing free
nerve endings in skin with not much success. The immunocytochemistry
neuro filament protein was a bit better but not great. Is there anyway
can improve on this?
