3-Stain (Dip) Kit is a 3-Step procedure for (quick) differential staining of blood smears, cytospins, and tissue imprints, and is useful in evaluating blood parasites, microbial organisms, and bone marrow specimens. The entire process takes 30 seconds as air dried specimens are fixed in Solution A, then dipped in Solutions B and C. Staining intensity is easily manipulated. Leukocytes appear crisp and distinct.
Acid Alcohol 1% is used in histology and cytology to remove excess stain and define nuclei following hematoxylin staining in the H&E and PAP methods . Acid Alcohol provides the proper amount of differentiation in order to produce a good H&E stain with crisp nuclear detail.
An optimal differentiator for the regressive staining method in cytology resulting in crisp, stained nuclei.
A cytology bluing solution formulated to optimally blue both regressive and progressive papanicolaou and non gyn specimens. Gentle alkaline reagents minimize cell loss from glass.
A rapid cytology stain formulated as a one-step counterstain. EA-OG™ combination cytology stain will deliver consistent staining while increasing efficiency in the staining process.
All stains are filtered prior to bottling and use a special process to ensure optimal freshness. Mercury Free Harris Hematoxylin produces a deep, dark blue-purple stain. It is generally used in regressive methods, but may also be used progressively both in histology and cytology preparations. Gill 1,2,3 generally used in the progressive method. Mayer's Hematoxylin used for routine H&E and immunochemstry.
EA-50, EA-50 Modified, and EA-65 are alcohol-based stains used in the cytology laboratory for routine cytoplasmic staining using thePapanicolaou Method.
Powdered stains certified by the biological stain commission. Eosin Y, Hematoxylin, OG-6, and Alcian blue. Powdered Eosin Y is used for preparing eosin secondary stains and for use in formulating stains for Romanovsky techniques and EA formulations. It is alcohol and water soluble and is certified by the Biological Stain Commission. Powdered Hematoxylin is used to prepare any hematoxylin formula for routine or special procedures that require nuclear staining or reaction with other tissue components. Powdered OG-6 is used in cytology for OG-6 preparation and in histology in pancreatic and pituitary staining techniques. It is also suitable for use as a counterstain in connective tissue procedures. Color index number 16230. Powdered Alcian blue is used in cytoplasmic staining techniques to demonstate mucopolysaccharides in tissue sections. The Alcian blue is of high quality and consistency and can be used to prepare stains of varying pH depending on the technique followed. This dye can also be used to mark tissue margins.
