      OverviewAcid-fast mycobacteria are difficult to stain because of the high proportion of lipid and wax in their cell walls. Once stained, the acid-resistant mycobacteria keep their coloring even after treatment with strong decolorizing solutions, such as HCL-ethanol.

      AFB staining kit for histology offers a modified Ziehl-Neelsen staining, which works without heating (also known as the Kinyoun method), so no exposure to phenol vapors from the carbol-fuchsin solution.

      Pre-treatment with Sputofluol frees the bacteria from the surrounding sputum and cell material, killing unwanted microorganisms at the same time.

      This kit includes a modified light green counterstain solution, which makes this new kit ideal for histology and anatomical pathology. The light green provides for a more definitive contrast against the red-stained AFB cells in comparison to the standard counterstain (methylene blue).

      • Convenient kit with a striking light green counterstain
      • Clear identification of red acid-fast bacteria
      • Long-shelf life, 3 years
      • IVD, CE product
