RE: [Histonet] Modified acid fast stain for actinomyces

From:"Marshall Terry Dr, Consultant Histopathologist"

No modification is needed. Neither does it stain the Actinomyces. Rather, the club shaped ends of the filaments, being an antigen-antibody complex - known as Splendore-Hoeppli phenomenon - are stained red. They are not necessarily present.
