The author's Sudan black technique has been improved by changes in fixation. One may fix as for the acid haematein test, or else in a modified Flemming's fluid. The former fixation allows very strong colouring by Sudan black, while the latter gives particularly faithful preservation of the form of the cells and their lipid inclusions.
