Hi Nora,

I used the Vector kit once for this purpose because I thought I had made up
the substrate solution wrong on an IHC run. I happened to have some
intestinal sections already on slides so I made up new solution with the
kit and it was positive for endogenous alkaline phosphate in the
intestines. I have not used it any more extensively than that, but the
stain was plenty dark enough and unequivocal in that circumstance.

Thanks, Gayle.  Have you tried using the kit for this purpose?  Has anyone
else out there?
