We studied the effect of the duration (0.5-48 h) of silver impregnation on the intensity of Bodian's silver staining using formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections of a human brain. The silver ion (Ag+) and copper ion (Cu2+) in the silver protein solution were quantified simultaneously for treatments of various durations. Both the intensity of staining and the quantities of Ag+ and Cu2+ were greatly affected by the duration of silver impregnation. While the quantity of Ag+ considerably… CONTINUE READING
