Safranin is a basic biological dye commonly used as a counter-stain in some of the staining protocols like gram staining.
Safranin is a cationic dye used in histology and cytology to distinguish and identify different tissues and cells. It is popular in medical research for staining acidic proteoglycan that is found in cartilage tissues, enabling researchers to analyze cell chondrogenesis. The safranin is employed as a counter-stain in endospore staining and Gram’s staining. It is mostly utilized for the identification of cartilage, mucin, and mast cell granules.
ConductScience offers Safranin in two presentations.
Made of high quality 100% pure virgin medical grade polypropylene so you won’t find recycled plastics in our tips. Every lot is lab tested and certified free of detectable Nuclease (Rnase/Dnase), Endotoxin (pyrogen) contamination, and certified to U.S.P. results. Resins are pre-tested for metal contamination. Tips are racked and packed in a teal rack. These racks are made of polypropylene and are autoclavable repeatedly. They have sturdy latch hinges that won’t come apart like lesser quality tip racks and a special snap lock designed so that it will not catch on your gloves.
