AW: [Histonet] Fungal staining

From:"Gudrun Lang"

Try a CAS stain. = PAS with Chromic acid 
Perhaps this fungus needs something stronger than Periodic acid.

Betreff: [Histonet] Fungal staining

Hi - everyone - does anyone know of any fungi that can not be
demonstrated by PAS stain? We appear to have one in a cow placenta which
is obvious on Grocott and H&E but do not stain on PAS. The micro lab
isolated Absidia spp but the hyphae in the Grocott are septate but I
believe Absidia are aseptate. Any ideas would be most welcome.
