Reticulin kit

Product Description

Seven-reagent kit for detecting argyrophilic reticulin fibers. It clearly differentiates between collagen and reticulin and nerve fibers and connective tissue. The main function of reticular fibers is to provide support and are normally found in liver, lymph nodes, spleen and kidneys.

Available Options:


Reticulin kit is used for identification and easier visualization of argentaffin reticular fibers in connective tissue. Reticulin provides structural support. It is found in the liver, spleen and kidneys. Reticulin fibers are clearly defined in the healthy liver; necrotic and cirrhotic liver has discontinuous fibers. The visualization is based on silver depositions on reticulin fibers. The tissue sample must be oxidized with potassium permanganate. Silver is formed from ammonia solution containing silver nitrate and is deposited in the form of brown sediment on reticulin fibers. Formalin acts as a reducing agent and accelerates the procedure. Unbound silver is washed away using sodium thiosulfate.
