Sucrose is widely used to preserve tissue prior to cryosectioning, but its use can result in freezing artifacts and damaged tissue. Now you can save time, effort and money with our innovative solution CryoGlass, resulting in consistent, reproducible cryopreservation of your precious tissue.
CryoGlass is a proprietary cryoprotectant that allows for rapid 3-hour cryoprotection and long term cryopreservation of your samples at -80°C. CryoGlass efficiently protects tissue every time, greatly minimizing the effects of repeated freeze-thaw artifacts; most tissues can be frozen at -80°C and thawed repeatedly without any loss of immunohistochemical staining or visible tissue artifacts. Our product leaves no residue on slides during staining procedure, eliminating undesirable background staining.
Our kit is designed for staining myelin/myelinated axons and Nissil substance on formalin fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue as well as frozen tissue. Our kit is used for identifying the basic neuronal structure in brain or spinal cord sections, and contains a Cresyl Echt Violet counterstain. Using our protocol and the modified formulation, myelinated tissue can be stained in as little as 30 minutes.
The Acid Fast Bacteria (AFB) Stain Kit is intended for use in the histological visualization of Acid Fast Bacteria and Tubercle Bacilli. This kit is a rapid 15-minute procedure. The lipoid capsule of the acid-fast organism takes up carbol fuchsin and resists decolorization.
Acid Fast Organisms: Bright Red
Background: Light Green
These Acid Fast Bacteria (AFB) Animal Control Slides contain sections of positive staining goat intestine and negative staining human lung. The positive control slides are intended to be used to verify histological techniques and reagent reactivity, and are not intended to be used for any quantitative purpose.
Tissues are formaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded, heat dried, and cut at 5 microns unless otherwise specified. Standard tissue placement is mid-range of slide.
