Hematoxylin & Eosin Staining

 

The routine hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stain is used for screening specimens in anatomic pathology, as well as for research, smears, touch preps and other applications.  Its two primary coloring agents stain all cellular material including nuclei (blue), and cytoplasmic elements (pink-red).  Popularity of this stain is due, in large measure, to its simplicity, ability to clearly demonstrate a wide variety of different tissue components, dependability, repeatability, and speed of use.
