Ready-To-Use kit for cytology gynecology and non-gynecology sections staining according to Papanicolaou enables complete sample processing in just a few minutes after sampling. The staining procedure is simplified and conducted in a few minutes. It contains all the reagents necessary for sample processing – 95% alcohol as fixative, deionized water, Hematoxylin HP, nuclear bluing reagent, OG-6 reagent and EA 50 reagent, as well as 100% alcohol for tissue dehydration and BioClear New (xylene substitute) for section clearing. It also contains mounting medium of very low viscosity and optimal refractive index (BioMount New) in practical packaging. The reagents are placed in practical jars and sections may be directly immersed. They are placed in the order of use in the box, which lowers the possibility of contamination of reagents during staining. The kit contains additional jar of Bluing reagent used after staining 50 sections. The kit is sufficient for staining approximately 100 sections.
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
BioGram ECO kit
Four-reagent phenol-free kit for the identification of bacteria according to Gram. Kit contains Gram Crystal violet, phenol free reagent, Gram Sodium hydrogencarbon, solution, stabilized Gram Lugol solution, double amount of Gram Decolorizer solution 2 and Gram Safranin solution as counterstain.
2×50 mL+4×100 mL 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.
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.
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.
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.
