Eosin Y solution 0.5% alcoholic, is a ready-to-use solution that can be used for routine staining in the hematoxylin-eosin staining process (H&E). The H&E staining process is the most frequently used staining method for histological material. Due to the hematoxylin solution, the nuclei will appear blue to dark violet in colour and the Eosin Y solution will stain the cytoplasma and intercellular substances red-orange.
