Polychromatic Romanowsky dyes are a standard in haematology of blood smears and bone marrow. Giemsa is one of the Romanowsky dyes and beside haematology, it can be used in histology for visualisation of Helicobacter pylori in gastroscopic samples of the stomach. This staining method is also known as slow Giemsa staining according to Lennart. Giemsa solution may also be used to identify blood parasites, inclusion bodies and mastocytes in histology sections. Giemsa HP kit for 100 tests contains reagents for differentiation and rehydration in Ready-to-Use jars, enabling the sections to be directly immersed during the staining procedure. The jars are closed after the use, and reagents can be reused.
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.
Three-reagent Hematoxylin-Basic Fuchsin-Picric acid staining kit for detection of cardiac muscle changes after ischemia or myocardial infarction. H.B.F.P. kit is a non-enzymatic histochemical technique for detection of early myocardial ischemia with vivid contrast.
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.
Martius Scarlet Blue (MSB) kit, 6x100ml+1x250ml
Seven-reagent kit used for fibrin visualisation, especially of older clusters. This method is a modification of Masson Trichrome and is ideal for studying connective tissue and vascular pathology.
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.
TB-Stain Histo kit
Three-reagent kit for staining acid-fast bacteria (pathogenic mycobacteria) in histology sections, sputum, smears and culture smears according to Ziehl-Neelsen. Heating of the carbol-fuchsin solution is avoided in this protocol hence omitting the release of hazardous phenolic vapours.
