Masson-Goldner Trichrome kit is used for visualisation of muscles, collagen fibres, connective tissues, gametes, nuclei, neurofibrils, neuroglia, collagen, keratin intracellular fibrils and Golgi apparatus negative staining. Method of staining muscle and collagen fibres in tissues during which Fast Green F.C.F. dye binds to collagen making it turn distinct green. It is also used for visualisation of increased collagen build-up associated with functioning tissue being mistaken for scar tissue (liver sclerosis diagnosis), but also for differentiating smooth muscle fibres and collagens.
Masson-Goldner Trichrome kit
Seven-reagent kit for staining muscle and collagen fibres with green counterstain. It is also used for visualising gametes, nuclei, neurofibrils, glial cells, keratins, intercellular fibrils and for differentiation of smooth muscle fibres and collagens.
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.
Alcian Yellow Toluidine Blue kit
Six-reagent kit for staining Helicobacter pylori in gastric tissue sections. This method is one of the most popular non-silver methods for staining of H. pylori, where bacteria are stained blue in contrast to yellow mucins.
Grocott kit, stabilised
Seven-reagent kit for visualization of fungi and histological argentaffin structures in general (such as basal membranes). Green counterstain provides clear and visually rich contrast to target structures stained black.
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.
