My interest in the picro-sirius red F3B method developed from research collaborations with biophysicists at my institution (the University of Western Ontario in London, Canada.) We slightly modified the regular (Junqueira) method to facilitate measuring the orientation of collagen fibres in the walls of intracranial saccular aneurysms.
