Field kit is primarily used for staining standard thin and thick blood smears, i.e. dense drops for the purpose of diagnosing blood parasites (such as Plasmodium which causes malaria). Because the amount of parasites in blood samples tends to be low and almost unobservable in standard blood smear, the preparation of thick blood smear enables 15-20 times higher sensitivity of the diagnostic method. Thick blood smears are not fixed; they are treated with hypotonic dye solution after drying on air. During that procedure white blood cells (leukocytes) are preserved and stained, while red blood cells (erythrocytes) are homolysed which in turn makes viewing of other present structures in blood under microscope easier. Thin blood smear staining should always be conducted at the same time as thick blood smear staining because the control of such smear enables parasite differentiation. Besides this, Field kit can also be used as a Romanowsky dye for rapid routine staining in haematology; it can be used for staining standard blood smears and bone marrow, but also for staining Helicobacter pylori in stomach histology samples. Each part of the Field kit is stabilised separately and prepared according to the highest standards.
Field kit 500ml
Ready to use two-reagent kit for rapid and efficient staining and detection of parasites in haematology samples. Primarily used for staining thin and thick blood smears (dense drop) for purpose of diagnosing blood parasites. Reagents are stored in containers that can be used as staining jars.
Papanicolaou Rapid Staining Kit, for 100 Tests
Ready-to-use eight-reagent kit (in 18 containers that can be used as staining jars) for rapid progressive gynecology and non-gynecology cytological samples. Contains xylene substitute as clearing agent and xylene substitute-based medium for permanent covering of samples.
PAP-100T for 100 tests
TB-Stain Cold Kit
Three-reagent kit for staining acid-fast bacteria according to Kinyoun. Contains TB Carbol Fuchsin reagent, double amount of TB Decolorizer and TB Malachite Green reagent as counterstain.
4 x 100ml bottles.
Warthin Starry kit
Five-reagent kit for staining Spirochaeta, Helicobacter pylori, Microsporidia and Legionella pneumophila. The kit contains 12 jars with gelatine that enables both incubation and staining of sections, as well as other reagents that enable precipitation of silver on the bacterial surface. The bacteria are found in the mucus of the surface epithelium, in the apical gastric glands and in the gastric mucosa.
Giemsa HP kit
Four-reagent kit for staining Helicobacter pylori in gastroscopic sections according to Lennart. Advantages of this method for detecting H. pylori are sensitive and reproducible results and easy performance.
Gomori Trichrome kit
Five-reagent kit for staining muscle, collagen fibre and nuclei, contains blue counterstain. The kit can be used to contrast skeletal, cardiac or smooth muscle.
Elastica-Van Gieson kit
Four-reagent kit for staining elastic fibres and differentiation between elastic tissue, collagen and other types of connective tissue. The rapid method enables a satisfactory result with shorter section staining time.
HE Rapid Staining kit- frozen and paraffin sections
Ready-to-use eight-reagent kit (in 16 containers that can be used as staining jars) for rapid HE staining of frozen and paraffin tissue sections in histopathology. Contains xylene substitute as clearing agent and xylene substitute-based medium for permanent section covering.
For 100 tests.
