Application: A blue-violet nuclear counter stain specially developed for rapid immunohistochemical staining



Gill’s Formulation 2; a nuclear counter stain of blue-violet color, especially developed for immunohistochemistry and cytology, which is particularly useful in cytology when more rapid staining is required. No need for filtering, and surface or bottom precipitates will not form. Slides do not fade, and the lower hematein and aluminum concentrations eliminate the danger of overstaining. It will not stain glass or plastic containers; this quantity is suitable to stain up to 1000 slides.
