The slides were then fixed in 95% ethyl alcohol and stained with Giemsa, Hematoxylin-Eosin and Periodic Acid Schiff and mounted on slides cover-slipped using DPX.
Histologically they form a diffuse blue fringe along the border of the epithelial layer (with hematoxylin-eosin staining).
These structures are difficult to identify using a hematoxylin-eosin stain and are best visualized with silver stains or immunohistochemistry for tau protein.
