Hemacolor® Rapid staining of blood smear for hematology, staining set for microscopy


Catalogue Number111661
DescriptionHemacolor® Rapid staining of blood smear
OverviewThe Hemacolor® Rapid staining of blood smear – staining kit for microscopy, is used for human-medical cell diagnosis and serves the purpose of the hematological and clinico-cytological investigation of sample material of human origin, for example smears of whole blood and bone marrow.
The Hemacolor® Rapid staining of blood smear staining kit combines the brilliance and reproducibility of the Pappenheim staining with the time-advantage of a rapid stain. The Hemacolor® Rapid staining of blood smear staining kit contains a fixing solution, one red (eosin) and one blue (azur) staining solution and phosphate buffer tablets pH 7.2 acc. to Weise (Cat. no. 109468). The staining solutions are separately applied, which results in a high degree of stability. The conventionally appearing precipitates in the hematological staining solutions, could be avoided in this kit. In addition to blood and bone marrow smears, Hemacolor® Rapid staining of blood smear can be used in clinical cytology, e.g. for staining urine, sputum, FNAB, effusions and lavages.
A kit contains safe 500-ml PE-bottles and six buffer tablets. The package is sufficient for 250 – 1000 applications. The buffer tablets acc. to Weise pH 7.2 (Cat.no. 109468) are also available in larger pack sizes, thus, they can be useful for higher demands. The three solutions needed for staining are all available individually as:

Hemacolor® Rapid staining of blood smear solution 1, fixing solution (Cat. no. 111955)
Hemacolor® Rapid staining of blood smear solution 2, colour reagent red (Cat. no. 111956)
Hemacolor® Rapid staining of blood smear solution 3, colour reagent blue(Cat. no. 111957)
