Our slide stain kits are convenient sets of stains, buffers and regents for specific applications, taking the guess work out of deciding what types of chemicals to order. Packaged in easy-to-use dropper bottles for ease of application, includes basic instructions* and SDS sheets.

This kit include 5 simple stains for coloring bacteria cells blue, purple, or red. Stained bacteria will highlight differences and enhance cell components so that the bacterium can be identified. The purpose of simple staining is to quickly identify bacterial cells by shape (spherical, rod-shaped, or spiral/corkscrew), size, and arrangement (formation as they reproduce) using just 1 stain.
