Is a staining method used to detect polysaccharides such as glycogen, and mucosubstances such as glycoproteins, glycolipids and mucins in tissues.

Application: Examination of mucosubstances (mucopolysaccharides), lamina basales, and glycogen deposits in liver etc. in tissue sections.The PAS reaction demonstrates aldehyde groups formed by the oxidation of certain tissue carbohydrates and glycogen.

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.
