Special stains are utilized to provide for visualization of matrix elements (fibrosis) as well as cytoplasmic substances (glycogen) or structures (melanin granules).

Our most commonly requested special stains include:

  • Gomori or Masson’s trichrome (fibrosis)
  • Picrosirius Red (fibrosis)
  • PAS (with and without diastase)
  • Iron 

Consultation, review and/or interpretation by a pathologist is also available upon request.
