Malarial Quick Stain Kit (2 x 950mL)ENG Scientific
- Solution I Buffered Stain
- Solution II Buffered Eosin
A combination of water-based buffered stains (pH range = 6.8 to 7.2) whereby the RBC’s are hemolyzed allowing the malarial parasites to be stained. Thick films provide a greater volume of blood and therefore, larger numbers of organisms for examination. However, characteristic definitive morphologic criteria may be more difficult to see. The cytoplasm of white blood cells will stain with eosinophils predominant.
