Negative staining method stains the background of your sample while leaving the actual bacterial cells untouched, allowing the cells to be quite visible on a dark background. Negative staining does not require the bacterial cells to be heat-fixed and is especially useful for cells that are susceptible to damage during the heat fixation process, such as cryptococcus neoformans. Often used to determine cell size, shape, arrangement.
