          DescriptionGram's decolorizing solution
          OverviewGram’s decolorizing solution - for the Gram staining method, is a ready-to-use solution used in bacteriology. The Gram staining allows a fast differentiation of bacteria in Gram-positive and Gram-negative. The mureine structure of the bacteria walls is the basis of the color affinity. Bacteria will be stained with Gram's crystal violet solution (Cat. no.109218) - an aniline dye - in the first step. After the treatment with iodine solution (Lugol’s solution stabilized with PVP, Cat no.100567), a dye-iodine complex will form. During the decolorizing step (Gram’s decolorizing solution, Cat. no. 110218), this complex stays in the multilayer mureine structures of the Gram-positive bacteria and they will appear blue-violet. Gram-negative bacteria have a monolayer mureine structure only, the dye-iod complex does not stay bound to the cellwall, they will be decolorized . Gram-negative bacteria will be counterstained by Gram's safranin solution (Gram's safranine solution (Cat.no. 109217) and appear pink to red.
          A bottle with 500 ml Gram's decolorizing solution is sufficient for staining up to 250 slides, it is also available as part of the Gram-color stain set, (Cat. no. 111885). It is an IVD product and CE registered. For more details, please see instructions for use (IFU).
