Fibrin is a fibrous insoluble protein produced in response to bleeding and is the primary constituent of a blood clot. In the MasterTech’s Carstair’s Stain Kit, Ponceau-Fuchsin Solution serves as the primary stain producing bright red fibrin and red muscle. Aniline Blue Solution, Modified Mayer’s Hematoxylin, and Picric Acid-Orange G serve as secondary stains, producing blue platelets, bright blue collagen, blue nuclei, and yellow to red blood cells. If tissue is fixed for less than 48 hours, fibrin stains orange to orange red, muscle red, platelets light gray, collagen bright blue, red blood cells red, green, or yellow, and nuclei blue.
