Several studies have suggested that Periodic acid Schiff
staining of nail clippings may be a very sensitive method for diagnosis of onychomycosis7,10,11.
Periodic Acid Schiff
: the samples were processed with periodic acid, washed in running tap water and then, they were stained with Schiff reagent for 2-5 min.
Pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (PAP) is a rare lung disease where periodic acid Schiff
(PAS)-positive eosinophilic material accumulates in the alveoli of the lungs.
Gomori methenamine silver (GMS) and periodic acid schiff
stain (PAS) stains were performed and highlighted thin filamentous organisms.
capsulatum-like yeasts were demonstrated by Periodic Acid Schiff
Slides were stained with Haematoxylin and Eosin, Papanicolaou, Periodic Acid Schiff
's and Gomori's methenamine silver stains.
In the cytological examination of BALF, dense acellular eosinophilic amorphous material (Photo 3) and periodic acid Schiff
(PAS)-stained macrophages (Photo 4) were seen.
The specimens are rehydrated in 70% ethyl alcohol and then placed successively in periodic acid Schiff
reagent, sodium metasulfite, Gill's haematoxylin, and Scott's tap water substitute for 2 minutes each, rinsing in two changes of tap water in between each step.

Periodic acid Schiff
reaction (PAS).--Carbohydrate and glycoprotein deposits in sections of spider abdomens were localized by hydrolysis for 10 min in 0.5% periodic acid in distilled water, followed by a 10 min wash in running tap water and 15 min of staining in freshly prepared 1% Schiff reagent.
