RE: [Histonet] oil red o

From:"Molinari, Betsy"

Hi Sally,
I use the ORO stain found in Freida Carson's Histotechnology text book
with consistent results. You do have to use a gentle hand when applying
the coverslip and use an aqueous mounting media.

Subject: [Histonet] oil red o

I am trying to locate a protocol for a consistant Oil red O stain. I
know if it is in coverslipping where the stain is moving off the fat
or in my differentiation step. I am staining on frozen skeletal muscle 
sections. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you,
