Product Category Description:
Each Gram crystal violet solution contains approximately 0.4% crystal violet aqueous alcohol solution. Each Gram decolorizer solution contains a 3:1 ratio of ethanol to acetone to assure even and consistent decolorization. Each Gram iodine solution (stabilized) contains an organically stabilized iodine-polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), which retains a safe and constant level of unoxidized iodine to maintain effectiveness as a mordant for at least 15 months. Gram iodine (unstabilized) is designed to prepare a traditional Gram’s working solution without requiring a breakage of ampules. Safranin is a mixture of dimethyl and trimethyl and is most commonly used for counterstaining nuclei red. Basic Fuchsin is a mixture of Pararosanilin, Rosanilin, and Magenta II.
Gram stain QC slides are conventional 25x75mm (1x3") microscope slides imprinted with ten squares. One square contains Gram positive and Gram negative control organisms Staphylococcus aureus and E. coli and the remaining nine squares are available for staining test isolates.
