Made of ABS Plastic
Simplify your workflow with this user-friendly approach to immunohistochemistry staining. It will accept up to 20 slides on four plastic rails covered with a polymer strip to perfectly hold slides even if tray is held at an angle. When humidity is needed, wells between rails will hold up to one ml of water securely without splashing. The middle wells will hold up to 2 ml each. Rails are raised not only to avoid water touching the slides but to make them more easily retrievable. The base will also hold excess stain solution dripping from the slides. Four rubber feet ensure greater base stability. Units are stackable for space saving purposes. This tray is also suitable not only for routine staining requiring a humid chamber, but is also ideal for Hematology, Cytology and Microbiology laboratories. Manipulation is made safe and easy by using only one hand.
The StainTray has a black base made of tough ABS plastic withstanding a wide range of chemicals (avoid chlorinated hydrocarbons ).
Two covers are available:
Dimensions with cover: 38 W x 24 D x 4.5 H cm (15 W x 9 3/8 D x 1 3/4 H in.)
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.
