Movat kit is used for visualisation of five types of connective tissues in a single staining process. It enables differentiation between collagens, muscle fibres, reticulin fibres, mucins and fibrins, and it also stains nuclei. It is used for diagnosing cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases.
Ten-reagent kit for staining collagen, elastic and muscle fibres, mucin and fibrin in tissue section. Movat kit is particularly useful when examining heart and vascular diseases.
P.A.S. Diastase Kit
BioGnost’s P.A.S. Diastase kit is most commonly used for identifying glycogen in liver. Periodic acid enables the molecules containing glycol groups to create aldehydes affected by Schiff’s reagent staining them violet (magenta). Specific stains are created by applying the PAS method on unsubsti-tuted polysaccharides, mucoproteins and glycoproteins, glycolipids and phospholipids. Alpha-amylase enzyme (also known as diastasis) is used for differentiation between glycogen and other PAS-positive structures by dissolving 1→4 glycosidic bonds, causing the glycogen to remain unstained after the PAS reaction. BioGnost’s P.A.S. Diastase kit uses thermostable enzyme which does not require heating to +37°C to be active, but incubat-ing the section at +37°C is preferred in order to achieve better glycogen breakdown. The same tissue section is used as negative control for this reaction, but the sample is not treated using alpha-amylase.

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.
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.
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.
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.
TB-Stain Auramine O Kit
Three-reagent kit for staining acid-fast bacteria using fluorescence method. Contains TB Auramine O reagent, double amount of TB Decolorizer Fluorescent and counterstain of TB Permanganate reagent.
4 x 100ml bottles.
