Alkaline stain for cell nuclei in smears from different origin. Pathogens (bacteria) examination.

Application: Blood smears examination for reticulocytes. Reticulocytes are juvenile red cells, which contain remnants of basophilic ribonucleoproteins. This material reacts with the dye to form a bluish black precipitate of granules or filaments. The most immature reticulocytes have the largest amount of precitable material. In the least immature only a few dots or short strands are seen. As the number of reticulocytes in the peripheral blood is a measure of erythropoietic activity, a reticulocyte count is one of the essential procedures of diagnostic haematology.

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.
