The EasyDip„¢ Slide Staining Rack will hold up to 12 microscope slides with dimensions such as 75 x 25 mm, (3 x 1 in.) and even 76 x 26 mm and with a thickness of 1.0 and 1.2 mm. The slides fit into individual slots for free passage and rapid drainage of staining fluids. Since they are placed vertically in the rack and not horizontally, their writing area will not be stained by the fluid, allowing their removal without the use of forceps.
The lid completely covers the EasyDip„¢ Slide Staining Jar to minimize spill and evaporation. A handle is permanently attached to the rack for easy insertion and removal of slides without your fingers touching the solution. Available in dark gray only. Will resist temperatures between -170 C and +121 C. Autoclavable.
60 x 64 x 97 mm H (2 1/4 x 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 in. H).
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.
