Disposable plastic tissue cassettes are suitable for holding and identifying tissue samples in processing, embedding, and sectioning procedures. The cassettes fit securely in microtome chuck adapters. They are molded from a high density polymer that is totally resistant to the chemical action of histological solvents. These cassettes are designed to accept standard metal lids and will keep specimens in complete safety during processing. The slanted writing surface accepts markings easily, permitting sample identification throughout all stages of embedding and long afterwards when in archives. They are available in 11 colors.
Each case contains 3 dispenser boxes of 500 cassettes.
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.
