Acid Alcohol

Acid Alcohol is used in histology and cytology to remove excess stain and define nuclei following hematoxylin staining in the H&E and PAP methods.

In order to produce a good H&E stain with crisp nuclear detail, it is critical that certain Hematoxylins are differentiated correctly, making Acid Alcohol a highly effective solution.

Available with 1% or 0.5% hydrochloric acid in 70% reagent grade alcohol, this Acid Alcohol can greatly improve reproducibility of staining results and help achieve standardization.
