Reticulin/Nuclear Fast Stain Kit is used to identify a primitive form of connective tissue, called reticulin, in tissue sections on the Artisan™ Link and Artisan™ Link Pro Staining Systems. An Ammoniacal Silver Nitrate solution is applied to stain the reticulin fibers in tissue. The silver is then reduced and toned to produce a black coloration of the fibers, which are visible by light microscopy. Other tissue elements will be stained pink.
