Greetings from, in the words of the histonet server, "a hospital
employee from an obscure locale". I have been a wallflower for several
weeks reading the digest and thought I might now be able to use your

I have a surgical colon specimen from a patient that the pathologist
wishes to test for E. histolytica. What stain or stains do you think
would be the best for me to run? I have a control that was obtained from
the CDC a very long time ago and the stain is so faded it is no longer
recognizable. My guess is it was some type of trichrome.
