Product Description

Alcian Blue

Application Notes

Alcian Blue can be used to determine proteins based on their Resonance Light Scattering by strongly enhancing the signals. It is useful as a bacterial stain, and as a dye for histiocytes and fibroblasts. It can also be used as a differential stain for acidic polysaccharides. It can be used for the demonstration of glycosaminoglycans in tissue sections. Alcian Blue 8GX is used as a heteroglycan stain for neutral, sulfated and phosphated mucopolysaccharides and glycosaminoglycans in tissues such as cartilage and extracellular matrices.
