Re: [Histonet] weils stain for myelin
Make up a fresh solution and just dust a little sodium iodate into it, but
not too much. Leave half an hour and use.
Alternatively, use a fresh solution and leave it ten minutes after adding
the mordant. It will ripen OK. The method is done by inspection anyway, so
just keep an eye on the staining and adjust the times.
