SummaryA selection of reagents capable of complexing with calcium in various ways was compared by applying them to tissue sections known to contain calcium in a variety of physiochemical states. Their histochemical potential was evaluated according to their sensitivity, specificity, accuracy of localisation and intensity of staining. Murexide, for light microscopy, and 8-hydroxyquinoline, for fluorescence microscopy proved to be the best overall reagents. They failed to demonstrate calcium… CONTINUE READING
