Histochemical demonstration of heavy metals

  title={Histochemical demonstration of heavy metals},
  author={Gorm Danscher},
The three steps of the sulphide silver method have been examined: 1) Transformation of metals to metal sulphides; 2) Fixation and embedding or freezing of the tissue for sectioning; and 3) Deposition of metallic silver on the metal sulphides in a physical developer. Based on the results, a revised method is described and discussed. It is particularly important 1) To maintain a sufficient but low concentration of sulphide ions during the perfusion; 2) To avoid using oxidating or acid fixatives… CONTINUE READING
