I am trying to figure out what to do about the special stains protocols. There are about 35 of them. Putting them on the front page does not seem to be efficient. I would like them all to be searchable and downloadable, maybe on a different page. What do you think, does it make a difference?
We did this as a test to see different versions of luxol fast blue (LFB). LFB is a stain for the myelin sheath or myelinated axons in brain and spinal cord. We tested on rat brain. There are 4 variations. They are; LFB / Cresyl violet (CR), LFB /H&E, LFB / Periodic acid schiff (PAS) and LFB / nuclear fast red (NFR). The H&E and NFR versions are for background staining only. The PAS could show glycogen or fungus present and the CR shows nissl bodies.
