The Modified Gomori Methenamine-Silver Nitrate Stain (GMS Stain Kit) is intended for use in the histologic visualization of fungi, basement membrane and some opportunistic organisms such as Pneumocystis carinii. Pneumocystis carinii is an opportunistic pathogen that causes severe pulmonary disease in humans, dogs, rats, mice and other vertebrate species with acquired, induced, or inherited immune deficiency syndromes. In addition, this procedure will demonstrate Actinomyces and related species, Nocardia asteroids, and certain encapsulated bacteria.
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.

Our Hematoxylin and Eosin Staining Kit makes it easy to produce reproducible, high quality H&E histology. The kit contains everything needed for Hematoxylin and Eosin staining and is intended for use in histology and cytology applications. Included in this kit is an optimized formulation of Eosin Y that provides the benefits of a traditional alcoholic formula with significant improvements in usability. Advantages of our kit include lower evaporation rates, better color patterns, a reduced tendency to spill over containers, hands, and countertops, and improved surface tension to remain on tissue section. Mayer's Hematoxylin (Lillie's Modification) produces crisp, intense blue nuclei that provides optimal contrast to the Eosin stained cytoplasm.
Comes with 500 ml bottles (each) of hematoxylin, eosin, and bluing reagent solutions, sufficient for hundreds of slides.
The Papanicolaou (PAP) Stain Kit is designed to differentiate between a variety of cells in vaginal smears for detection of vaginal, uterine and cervical cancer. In addition, this procedure is valuable for staining a variety of other bodily secretions and cell smears. The procedure was developed in the early 1940's by George Papanicolaou.
