Stains basement membrane and reticulum fibers in just 20 minutes. This kit includes a 20 minute microwave procedure and the traditional one hour and thirty minute procedure. This kit is suitable in lieu of and comparable to the Periodic Acid/Methenamine Silver Procedure for Basement Membranes. The MasterTech Jones Stain Kit differs from this procedure by using Nuclear Fast Red as a counterstain instead of Light Green, which provides better contrast. A Methenamine Silver Developer Solution serves as the primary stain, with Gold Chloride toning the tissue sections, producing gray to black basement membranes and reticulum fibers against a pink to red background with red nuclei, counterstained by Nuclear Fast Red. There is no filtration required when using MasterTech Nuclear Fast Red. 100ml Stain Kit yields between 30 and 112 slides. Pint Stain Kit yields between 50-240 slides. Slide Yields assume maximum slides stained per run, maximum runs per use. Actual Slide Yields may vary.
