Alcian Yellow Toluidine Blue kit

Product Description

Six-reagent kit for staining Helicobacter pylori in gastric tissue sections. This method is one of the most popular non-silver method for staining of H. pylori, where bacteria are stained blue in contrast to yellow mucins.

Available Options:


Alcian Yellow Toluidine Blue is used for visualization of H. pylori found in endoscopic and surgical stomach samples. In the first step Alcian Yellow is specifically bound for previously oxidized mucins; gastric bacteria are stained afterward, as well as cellular nuclei and other structures using Toluidine Blue. This provides excellent contrast between dark blue stained bacteria placed on a yellow surface and extracellular foveolar mucins.
