Hematoxylin acc. to Weigert is used in combination with various special (trichrome) stains. Because of its resistance to acidic solutions, it retains the dye and stains nuclear membranes. Unlike the standard hematoxylins used in histology, such as hematoxylins acc. to Harris, Mayer, Mayer-Lillie, and Gill, Hematoxylin acc. to Weigert contains ferric ions that create resistance to acidic solutions and sudden pH value changes. Hematoxylin acc. to Weigert is most commonly used in the following trichrome methods: A.F.O.G., Gomori Trichrome, Masson-Goldner Trichrome, Masson Trichrome, Van Gieson Trichrome, Elastica-Van Gieson and Weigert-Van Gieson. Most of those methods are used for staining muscle and connective fibres.
Hematoxylin W kit
Acid-resistant hematoxylin according to Weigert. Two-reagent kit that stains the nuclei blue-black, often a component of special staining kits for connective tissues.
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.
Martius Scarlet Blue (MSB) kit
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.
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.
TB-Stain Fluorescent Kit
Three-reagent kit for fluorescence-microscopic detection of acid-fast bacteria. Contains TB Auramine-Rhodamine reagent, double amount of TB Decolorizer Fluorescent and TB Permanganate 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.
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.
