A simple and rapid stain for copper in liver tissue.


PMID 9845729

Abstract

We report a modified copper stain that can be completed in 2 hours, rather than overnight, which is required for other stains. This is useful in the diagnosis of chronic cholestatic syndromes, Wilson's disease, Indian childhood cirrhosis, and other conditions associated with copper retention.
