Histological Routine Staining Solutions & Kits

Our range of ready-to-use histological staining solutions and kits help you to avoid direct contact with dry dyes and increases reproducibility—essential for laboratory audits. Our ready-to-use H&E (hematoxylin-eosin) staining solutions deliver robust results with brilliant differentiation and are made available in several package sizes. We also offer Giemsa, PAS (periodic acid-Schiff), van Gieson, and Alcian blue-staining solutions and kits. Our Schiff’s reagent can be stored at room temperature and used right out of the bottle without further preparation.

Histological Special Stains & Kits

Histological special stains are used in staining techniques to identify suspected pathogens or to demonstrate specific cellular components that aid pathologists in the evaluation of disease states. Our portfolio offers commonly applied special stains, with reagents and prepared solutions available in ready-to-use kits. Many of our special stain kits have microwave applications, so you can obtain your results in a fraction of the time.

ISOSLIDE® Control Slides with Reference Tissue

Our ISOSLIDE® control slides are reliable, CE-certified, IVD products that permit comparison between your specimen preparation and reference tissue for easy quality control.
