Special stain · All
Iron Stain Kit is used to identify iron pigment in tissue sections on the Artisan™ Link and Artisan™ Link Pro Staining Systems. Iron is an important component of the human body, especially as a vital constituent of oxygen carrying hemoglobin. Iron is stored in bone marrow, and a loss of iron stores is indicative of anemia. An excess of iron deposited in organs such as liver, spleen, and bone marrow may be a result of hemachromatosis. Ferric deposits: blue, nuclei: red, and the background tissue elements are stained pink. This stain is not recommended for bone marrow smears.
