Default Alternatives to Sirus Red Stain?



Hi
I am looking to use Sirius Red to stain collagen on paraffin embedded sections.

The protocol i found uses Picric Acid. Does any1 have another protocol that uses something other than Picric Acid?

Hi,

I just found your comment.
I recommend to use the kit provided from Chondrex. The products number is 9046, it is Semi-quantitative Collagen Assay kit. They also provide the protocol.

Good luck.
