H&E Stain Kit, Hematoxylin (Ehrlichs) Eosin (#BZ0921)
Hematoxylin & Eosin Staining (H&E) is the most common staining technique used in histology and pathology diagnosis. Hematoxylin has a deep blue-purple color and stains nucleic acids. Eosin is pink and stains proteins, erythrocytes, cytoplasm and other tissue elements. In a typical tissue, nuclei are stained blue, whereas the cytoplasm and extracellular matrix have varying degrees of pink staining.
Ehrlichs Hemotoxylin can be used with both progressive and regressive protocols. It is naturally oxidized resulting in longer shelf life. Specific instructions vary, based on application, protocol, and personal preference. User Guidelines are included to aid in general understanding. Packaged in USA.
