Stains for Helicobacter pylori in 25 minutes. This kit is suitable in lieu of and comparable to Alcian Yellow/Toluidine Blue Helicobacter pylori Stains such as the Leung and Gibbon’s Technique. The Helico*Stat® Stain Kit differs from these procedures by using true Alcian Yellow dye instead of an alternative. This provides tremendous contrast between the organism and mucin. Toluidine Blue serves as the primary stain, producing blue Helicobacter pylori and background against yellow mucins, counterstained by Alcian Yellow. 100ml Stain Kit yields between 53 and 66 slides. Pint Stain Kit yields between 211-330 slides. Liter Stain Kit yields between 450-660 slides. Slide Yields assume maximum slides stained per run, maximum runs per use. Actual Slide Yields may vary.
