To show and differentiate acid mucopolysaccharides in tissue sections.

Application: Alcian Blue pH 0.5 staining kit is used for the demonstration of sulfated mucosubstances, which can be produced by several types of epithelial and connective tissue. Alcian blue reacts with polyamines whose components are sulphuric and carboxylic radicals (phosphate radicals of nucleic acid do not react). As result, sulfated mucosubstances only are stained.

N.B!: The clinical interpretation of any staining, or its absence, should be complemented by morphological studies and proper controls, and should be evaluated within the context of the patient’s clinical history and other diagnostic tests by a qualified pathologist. All reagents have been optimally prepared for use and require no mixing or diluting.
