Acid Fuchsin is one of the dyes used in the Masson's Trichrome Staining technique. This method is commonly used to stain tissue sections in the Histology and Cytology Laboratory in order to distinguish muscle from collagen. The muscle stains red with the acid fuchsin and the collagen is stained green or blue with light green SF yellowish or methyl blue.
