Colloidal Iron Stain Kit, Artisan™
The Colloidal Iron stain is used to identify carboxylated and sulfated mucopolysaccharides and glycoprotein mucin in tissue on Artisan™Link and Artisan™ Link Pro Special Staining Systems. Colloidal ferric ions are, at a low pH, absorbed principally by carboxylated and sulfated mucosubstance. The excess reagent is washed out and the classic Prussian blue reaction is used to demonstrate iron bound to the tissue. The stain has been optimized for use with 4 µm thick tissue sections.
Carboxylated and sulfated mucopolysaccharides and glycoprotein mucin: Dark blue
Nuclei: Light pink
Cytoplasm: Light pink
