Cell Staining

Cell Staining can be defined as an artificial coloration for better visualization of a biological samples such as cells, tissues or micro-organisms to be examined under the microscope.

Hematoxylin and eosin (H&E stain) is the most commonly used light microscopical stain in histology and histopathology. Hematoxylin, a basic dye, stains nuclei blue due to an affinity to nucleic acids in the cell nucleus; eosin, an acidic dye, stains the cytoplasm pink. Uranyl acetate and lead citrate are commonly used to impart contrast to tissue in the electron microscope.
