Special Stain Guide

Components & Sets

Kits

"Components" means that the stains and reagents are available separately and have individual catalogue numbers. The components are often stock solutions; can be used in more than one procedure at the appropriate dilutions and for reorder of individual bottles as needed. A "Set" is an existing grouping that can be used as "part of" the component method of building your own kits. Shelf life and storage temperature are designated per bottle.

"Kits" means the stains and reagents are grouped and boxed under one catalog number. When the chemistry permits, the solutions are at working dilutions. The bottles are marked solution A, B, C, etc. for ease in recognizing order of use. Shelf life and storage temperature are designated per bottle.

250 ml kit 9101A 70.80

Detects the presence of acid-fast mycobacteria in tissue sections.  Carbol Fuchsin Stain, Ziehl-Neelsen, combines phenol and basic fuchsin that works to permeate the lipoid capsule of acid-fast organisms and renders them resistant to acid alcohol decolorization.
