Lead hydroxide stain

A stain for electron microscopy; after aldehyde fixation, alkaline lead hydroxide preferentially stains RNA, but after OsO4 fixation, it reacts largely with osmium in tissues to give a general stain; in addition to binding to cytomembranes, it also stains carbohydrates (glycogen).
