Warthin-Starry Stain Kit

25093 - Reticulin Stain Kit - Discontinued 01/21/2011

Identifies Spirochetes and other bacteria such as H. pylori and two causative agents of cat scratch
disease, Bartonella henselae and Afipia felis. Warthin-Starry Stain relies on the ability of certain bacteria
to bind silver ions from solution. Subsequent addition of a reducing agent then converts this bound silver
to visible metallic silver. In the Warthin-Starry stain, tissue is sensitized prior to application of the silver complex. An aqueous silver nitrate solution combined with the reducing agent hydroquinone is applied and a silver diamine complex is generated.

Kit Contains:

  • 1.5ml - 2% silver nitrate
  • 3.75ml - 5% gelatin
  • 2ml -  0.15% hydroqinone
