Counterstain and Mounting Media

Counterstain

BioGenex offers the following counterstains for use in Immunohistochemistry, in situ Hybridization and other applications with either manual or automated staining systems.

  • Mayer’s hematoxylin is a blue stain that does not contain alcohol and therefore is compatible with both alcohol soluble non-permanent chromogens (AEC, Fast Red and New Fuchsin) and alcohol-insoluble chromogens (DAB and Elegance Red). It is alcohol and xylene insoluble and therefore compatible with most clearing agents and mounting media.
