Histochemical Stains

Histochemical stains are important methods that are applied for the visualization of tissue and cell structures. As we know, living or fixed cells have very little inherent color and only very small differences in the refractive indices of their component parts. By staining tissue sections, it allows scientists and pathologists to observe, under a microscope, tissue morphology (structure) or to look for the presence or prevalence of particular cell types, structures or even micro-organisms.

Histochemical Stains include routine H&E stain and special stains.  Routine staining refers primarily to the hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stain. Special staining refers to non-H&E staining. It covers a wide variety of methods and techniques used to visualize particular tissue structures, elements, or even micro-organisms not identified by H&E staining.
