Abstract

A less than three-hour hexachrome modification of Movat's pentachrome stain is described, its various steps discussed, and its principal uses in histopathology presented. The hexachrome procedure consistently yields good results, with excellent and colorful differentiation of muscle, various connective tissue components, mucinous secretions and intra-cytoplasmic structures in human and animal tissues obtained surgically or at autopsy. Alternative abbreviated procedures for muscle-connective tissue differential staining and for study of nuclear detail are also described.
