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