DescriptionPAS staining kit
OverviewThe PAS (periodic acid-Schiff) staining kit - for detection of aldehyde and mucosubstances, is one of the most widely used chemical methods in histology and is specific in staining non-substituted polysaccharides, neutral mucopolysaccharides, muco- and glycoproteins, as well as glycol- and phospholipids. The PAS staining kit contains ready-to-use Schiff's reagent and periodic acid solution for the staining of approx. 2500-3000 slides. The combination of PAS staining with Alcian blue allows the additional identification of acidic mucosubstances (glycosaminoglycans).
The kit can be used for clinical diagnostic purposes and in laboratory accreditation processes as it is certified and registered as IVD and CE product. For more details, please see instructions for use (IFU). The IFU can be downloaded from this webpage.
