Collagen Type I and III Staining
Our Picrosirius Red Stain binds specifically to collagen fibrils of varying diameter that is used to distinguish collagen Type I from Type III. Picrosirius Red Stain will quantify the amount of collagen in a given area of myocardial tissue. (i.e. the collagen area fraction)
Collagenous structures of the mandible stain brilliant red. Unlike sections stained with hematoxylin and eosin alone, dentinal tubules, Sharpey's fibers and other structures can be seen clearly after using Picrosirius Red Stain procedure. Under polarized light, collagen fibers can be specifically identified and their orientation determined.
Picrosirius red-hematoxylin is recommended for examination of normal or pathologic dental specimens.:
