DBS’s Blue Hematoxylin Kit is a histological staining reagent suitable for visualization of nuclei in tissue sections. Blue Hematoxylin is a blue nuclear counterstain. Bluing Reagent is used following Counterstaining both designed for optimal performance when used in immunohistochemistry.
DBS’s Blue Hematoxylin is intended for use in the histologic demonstration of nuclear staining. This staining technique is used to make the critical distinction between a normal nucleus and an abnormal one. When used as a counterstain in immunohstochemical procedures, Blue Hematoxylin is compatible with most commonly used chromogens including DBS HRP-Yellow, HRP-Red, HRP-Green, HRP-Black, and DAB. When applied to tissue sections, these will change the hue of hematoxylin from purple to blue It replaces the strong alkaline rinses or long tap water washes which may cause loss of cells or tissue sections.
