Picrosirius Red Stain binds specifically to collagen fibrils of varying diameter that is used to distinguish collagen Type I from Type III. Picrosirius Red Stain will quantify the amount of collagen in a given area of myocardial tissue. Picrosirius Red staining is also useful in the quantitative aspect of liver fibrosis by measuring a change in collagen proportion stained as red (Jang et.al., 2014).
