|Description:||This section was stained by the Gomori iron method in which the metal
stained blue. The nuclear counter stain used was red-pink. The red
blood cells did not stain and appear as yellowish structures. Notice
the lymphoid nodule (numerous lymphocytes with pink nuclei) and the
artery of the white pulp.The iron deposit is found in the red pulp
because this is the location where old red blood cells are destroyed.
In which main cells type do you think the iron is localized? Original
