This kit is a modified Highman's Congo Red stain. It is used for the detection of amyloid on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections with amyloidosis, and may be used for frozen sections as well. The amyloid deposits will be stained red and the nuclei will be stained blue. The thickness of sections is usually 5 um. But in case of inadequate amyloid deposits, 10um thick sections will be more satisfactory.
The kit components:
- Congo Red Solution - 250 ml
- Alkaline Alcohol Solution - 250 ml
- Mayer’s Hematoxylin Solution - 250 ml
