Oil Red O Stain Kit (For Fat) is intended for use in the histological visualization of fat cells and neutral fat. Oil Red O is a dye that is excellent for the demonstration of general localization of fats in frozen tissue sections. Oil Red O staining can be used to visualize tumors arising from fat cells, allowing them to be differentiated from other types of tumors. In addition, Oil Red O is useful for identification of degenerating material, such as cell membranes or myelin, that contains fat deposits.
Oil Red O staining is based upon the greater solubility of the dye in the lipoid substances than the usual hydro-alcoholic dye solvents. This kit may be used only on frozen tissue sections, fresh smears, or touch preps.
Fat Cells: Red
Neutral Fat: Red
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.
