Microanatomical Stains and procedures: Review

Abstract

The purpose of staining is to enhance the visibility of parts of cells or tissues. Consequently, while analyzing uncoated static models or slices, the distinguishable components have different refractive indices. Similar refractive indices render parts indistinguishable. But after dying it with one or more dyes, the color of the dye will change and increase the distinction between the parts of different refractions; similarly, dyes that color parts of the same refraction with similar refractions with different colors or varying degrees of the color of the same dye will make the differences between the chemical or physical components of those parts more apparent, thereby making them appear more distinct. The purpose of the study was to shed light on how histological and histochemical stains are currently being treated.
