Täby, Sweden: – Scandinavia’s leading supplier of validated biotechnology supplies, Nordic BioSite, has enhanced its huge product range with a new series of Special Stains kits focused on vascular medicine.

The Movat Pentachrome Stain Kit is intended for use in histological demonstration of collagen, elastin, muscle, mucin and fibrin in tissue sections. This procedure is particularly useful when studying the heart, blood, vessels and various vascular diseases.

Modified Russell-Movat

The new kit follows the Modified Russell-Movat protocol in which elastic fibers stain black, the nuclei stains blue/black, the collagen and reticular fibers stain yellow, the mucin stains bright blue, the fibrin stains bright red, and the muscle stains darker red.

BioSite offer two versions of the Movat Pentachrome Stain Kit; KSC-MPS-1 and KSC-MPS-2 that support 400 slides and 100 slide applications respectively. Each kit comprises a collection of 11 reagents, including Hematoxylin, Ferric Chloride and Lugol’s lodine Solutions.

Each individual component of the Movat special stain kit is also available for purchase in bulk from BioSite.
