Re: Movat's pentachrome stain of methyl methacrylate sections

From:"Renton, Lousie, Mrs" <>

Dear Gina,

I think you mean "Saffran" (saffron) du Gatinais.  I remember using 
ordinary saffron - the sort that is used for cooking. I then managed 
to source some through Sigma. Both were very expensive.  If you 
look at Brian Llewellyn's website, 
you'll find a very user-friendly recipe (thanks Peggy for this grreat 

Best regards
