Ready-to-Use Staining Kits and Solutions for Bacteriologic Investigations

Bacteriology is nearly as old as the microscope. But what were once minute and mobile curiosities, can now be rapidly and specifically detected, identified and classified thanks to modern stains and methods.

Our broad spectrum of innovative bacteriological products includes brilliant, ready-to-use staining solutions and kits, user-friendly phenol-free alternatives, plus a complete portfolio of auxiliary reagents and instruments.

All of our solutions, stains and kits are ready to use, IVD-registered, CE-certified, and undergo comprehensive quality controls, making them suitable for use in clinical diagnostics as well as industrial quality control. Assured high quality, long shelf life and batch-to-batch consistency gives you definitive and reproducible results to facilitate your bacteriology testing, even in difficult diagnostic cases.

General Bacteriological Staining Solutions

Bacteriology requires an arsenal of stains and techniques to specifically detect and identify bacteria, fungi and parasites by microscopy. Achieve reliable and brilliant results for all your staining methods, including Giemsa, Gram, Löffler and Ziehl-Neelsen, with our collection of high-quality, CE-certified IVD products.

Gram Staining

Gram-bacteria staining is an essential procedure in any clinical lab and for many industries. Differentiation is achieved as Gram-positive bacteria retain a violet-blue stain, while Gram-negative bacteria are decolorized by organic solvent, and turn orange-pink when counterstained.

We supply various solutions needed to perform this multi-step procedure with confidence, speed and ease. Find crystal violet and aniline dyes, Gram’s Iodine and decolorizer solutions, and safranin orange counterstain in safe PE bottles and in a variety of packs and sizes. You’ll also find our phenol-free kit for increased user safety. Our Gram staining solutions and sets are easy to handle and provide reliable staining results.

Mycobacteria Staining

Early diagnosis of mycobacterial infection is critical as these acid-fast bacteria are highly pathogenic and responsible for various diseases, including tuberculosis.

For reliable detection of these pathogenic bacteria, we offer a wide selection of solutions and kits suitable for manual or automated staining. Perform fluorescence detection under the microscope with our acid-fast stain solutions and Tb-fluor staining kit (phenol-free option available), or try our Ziehl-Neelson solutions for hot staining of smears or paraffin sections. Modified Ziehl-Neelsen cold staining is also possible with our ready-to-use Tb-color kits.

Trichomonad Staining

Trichomonad parasites are most commonly detected from gynecological and urethral swabs. Microscopic detection can be reliably performed with our ready-to-use Cytocolor® and xylene-free Neo-Cytocolor® staining solutions and rapid-staining kits. All solutions and kits suitable for clinical diagnostic applications, and for laboratory accreditations and certifications.
