RE: [Histonet] Counterstain for Von Kossa

I agree with Connie, there is no stupid question.  People will stop
asking questions, if someone/themselves gets chastised every time
someone/themselves asks a insignificant question.  This forum is not
just all about antibodies.

I think there is a really valuable learning experience in going to
libraries and doing a web search before asking question on this list. 
have always found that digging out info on my own helps me learn thing
quicker and faster than having it spoon fed.  Having said that, I also
believe that this list provides a valuable reference for those whose
time may not allow them the luxury of going to the library or making
extensive internet search.  I, for one, am happy to provide info to
anyone who asks.  My view is... if anyone feels the requested info is
too basic to bother with, don't bother replying.

Any Histology staining book will have a procedure for this stain. 

Lots of counterstains to choose from, but nuclear fast red is the

I am going to rant here, so please be patient with me.

How many places out there are opening up labs or doing research with
trained people? And if these new people have internet access to find
histonet, they should be finding websites with actual procedures, AND
most colleges and universities have libraries with REAL books on
histology procedures. Go there and read. Since becoming registered 25
years ago,  when I was asked to do something new I would go to my own
library I have accumulated or the university library if it was really
unusual and read, because we did not have the internet.
