Reticulin kit is used for identification and easier visualisation of argentaffin reticular fibres in connective tissue. Reticulin provides structural support. It is found in the liver, spleen and kidneys. Reticulin fibres are clearly defined in the healthy liver; necrotic and cirrhotic liver has discontinuous fibres. The visualisation is based on silver depositions on reticulin fibres. The tissue sample must be oxidized with potassium permanganate. Silver is formed from ammonia solution containing silver nitrate and is deposited in the form of brown sediment on reticulin fibres. Formalin acts as a reducing agent and accelerates the procedure. Unbound silver is washed away using sodium thiosulfate.
Seven-reagent kit for detecting argyrophilic reticulin fibres. It clearly differentiates between collagen and reticulin and nerve fibres and connective tissue. The main function of reticular fibres is to provide support and are normally found in liver, lymph nodes, spleen and kidneys.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
