stains and their perspective microscopes
« on: November 29, 2013, 02:35:47 PM »

Is there a link or web page that will have a table to show stains and their perspective microscopes?

I am generally concerned with carbohydrate, amyloid and microorganism special stains. I do know that most of them are Light microscopes. but are there more variations?

Usually histotechnology goes the cheapest way and that's the light microscope.
For amyloid you need polarization filters.
For stains with fluorochromes you need fluorescence-microscopes. (e.g. Rhodamin for Tb or immunofluorescence)
For thick sections confocal microscopes are helpful.
For surface-experiments binocular microscopes ...
up to electronmicroscopy...

I think you should go the other way round and ask the producer of modern microscopes, what applications can be used.
