The Wheatley Trichrome method first introduced in 1951 employs a modification of traditional fixation and dehydration methods. This multi-chromatic method yields rapid staining and excellent definition on amoebae and flagellates. PVA fixed stool specimens should be allowed to dry overnight. Blood cells and bacteria stain red, while yeast and vegetable fibers stain green. In tissue sections connective tissue is green, muscle and cytoplasm red, and nuclei blue.
