Eosin Y Solution (Modified Alcoholic)

Eosin Y Solution (Modified Alcoholic) is intended for use in histology and cytology applications. This newly formulated Eosin provides the benefits of a traditional alcoholic formula with significant improvements in usability. Advantages include lower evaporation rate, better color patterns, reduced tendency to spill over container, hands, and countertops, and improved surface tension to remain on tissue section.

Cytoplasm: Light Pink
Collagen: Pink
Muscle: Pink/Rose
Erythrocytes: Pink/Red

Methylene Blue Solution

Methylene Blue Solution has been optimized in our research laboratories to give outstanding results when used in various procedures such as the Ziehl-Neelsen, Fite's, and Gram stain. The stain is also suggested for use in staining a variety of bacteria (Corynebacterium diphtheria, Haemophilus influenzae, Neisseria, etc.) and leukocytes. This reagent produces dark blue nuclei with very light blue cytoplasm.

Nuclei: Dark Blue
Cytoplasm: Light Blue
Corynebacterium Diphtheria: Blue Granules
Escherichia Coli: Blue Rods
Streptococcus Pyogenes: Blue Cocci
