Liver, Pancreas & Gall Bladder

T.183 Liver section from an animal that has been injected intravenously with an iron compound.

This material has subsequently been phagocytosed by the Kupffer cells which line the sinusoids.

The iron has been demonstrated by the Prussion blue reaction section counterstained with haematoxylin and Van Gieson . Note the extensive cytoplasm of the Kupffer cells in sharp contrast to the small dark nucleus which is visible when purely morphological stains are used.
