DescriptionHematoxylin solution modified acc. to Gill III
OverviewHematoxylin solution modified acc. to Gill III - for microscopy, is used for human-medical cell diagnosis and serves the histological and clinico-cytological investigation of sample material of human origin. It is a ready-to-use staining solution that when used together with other in vitro diagnostic products from our portfolio makes target structures evaluable for diagnostic purposes in histological and clinico-cytological specimen materials, for example histological sections of e. g. the kidney, muscle tissue, heart, or lung. In hematoxylin-eosin staining (H&E), the most widely used histological staining technique, nuclear staining is achieved using ready-to-use staining solutions, such as Mayer’s hemalum solution or Hematoxylin solution modified according to Gill III. The dye is oxidized in a controlled manner, which renders the results robust and allows a brilliant differentiation of the stained structures. Counterstaining of i.e. for proteins, collagen, keratin, intercellular substances can be performed with alcoholic or aqueous Eosin Y solution 0.5 %.
A 500 ml bottle is sufficient for 1500 - 2500 stainings. It is registered as IVD and CE product. For more details, please see instructions for use (IFU). The IFU can be downloaded from this webpage.
