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, 2014).

Kit contains:
Solution A - Phosphomolybdic Acid (250ml or 500ml)
Solution B - Picrosirius Red F3BA Stain (250ml or 500ml)
Solution C - 0.1 N Hydrochloride Acid (250ml or 500ml)

The 250 ml kit stains up to 100 slides; 500 ml kit stains up to 200 slides
