Histology, cytology and other related scientific disciplines study the microscopic anatomy of tissues and cells. In order to demonstrate a good tissue and cellular structure, the samples need to be stained in a correct manner. Fuchsin Basic dye is used for staining and microscopical identification of mucins, Negri bodies and acid-resistant organisms. It is a mixture of Rosanilin, Pararosaniline, New Fuchsin and Magenta II dyes. All the ingredients of Basic Fuchsin are soluble in water and alcohol. For very sensitive staining procedures it is recommended to use pure Pararosaniline solution. Fuchsin Basic dissolved in phenolic solution acts as a dye enhancer and it is called carbol fuchsin and it is used for staining bacteria that cause TBC.
