Peripheral Nerve Histology

(Stain - Osmium)

  • NAVL - Nerve, Artery, Vein and Lymph.
  • has a great affinity for lipids and is chemically bound to the fat and as such acts as a fixative.
  • using osmium as a 'stain' makes use of the fact that osmium oxidises tissue fats and forms a black substance which is easily seen in the light microscope.
