This reticulin silver plating stain has been designed for the detection of reticular fibers in histological specimens.
Fibers that can not be adequately visualized using an H and E stain may be visible through this silver plating stain.
Used to visualize human reticular fibers, which are components of membrane structures, capillaries and peripheral nerve fibers, as well as organs such as the liver, kidneys and hematopoetic organs.
Reticulin visualization gives greater contrast and sharpness against the background.
Gordon and Sweets’ silver stain for reticulin may be followed by nuclear staining with nuclear fast red-aluminum sulfate solution 0,1 % when nuclei, collagen and the background are to be stained in addition to the reticular fibers. Sufficient for up to 110 section slides.
The kit is sufficient for up to 110 section slides.
Forpakning: Eight bottles of 30 ml, in a fibre case.
