To demonstrate mast cells (with histamine, heparin metachromatic granules) in tissue sections. The material for sections should be pre-fixed in 10% neutral buffered formalin. Method could be used for paraffin and frozen sections (5-6µm). These cells are found widely distributed in the connective tissue.
