DID YOU KNOW 14?

Did you know that after adding 5 g of copper (shot) metal to the protargol solution in Bodian’s technique for nerve fibres and nerve endings the quality of the result is considerably improved?

 

This is not one of mine and I haven’t tried it as we send all of our neuropathology to a specialised neuropathology laboratory at our Head Office in Adelaide. The staff there gave me this one and they assure me that it really works. So if you use Bodian’s give it a try.
