Stains and Dyes

Our Stains

Does your slides need to be stained to highlight specific tissue types? We can help. Whether you have or need us to make slides, frozen or paraffin, we can stain them. There are many variations of most stains, like the 18 reticulin stain types we know of; a few of them, Gordon and sweets retic, Wilder’s retic, Snook’s retic and Gomori’s retic. We typically test 2 -3 staining techniques on many types and species (Human, Mouse, rat) of tissues to get the best representation across all tissue types and pick the best one.

All of our stains are modified by in house specialists, who tailor them for bright, best color of tissues.  These stains are closely regulated by our trained staff through control tissues.  Staining solutions are made in house from powdered dyes to specific specifications and tested on control tissue before using.  All solutions are tested for correct pH, given lot numbers and expiration dates.  This monitoring system gives correct staining characteristics that are necessary for correct tissue identification. In house, species specific controls are cut, tested and provided for all stains.

Our staining techniques are by no means the be all end all list , we are happy to work-up any particular stain that you prefer. Stain List is provided as a downloadable pdf.

Note: Please contact us before sending us any slides.
