Special Stains Service


KMD Bioscience can provide a wide range of comprehensive and reliable special stains for sectioned paraffin-embedded tissues or cells to meet customers' experimental needs.

Special stains describe several alternative staining techniques and histochemical procedures used when traditional H&E does not provide all the information a pathologist or researcher needs. Specialty staining techniques demonstrate the presence of tissue structures, cells, microorganisms, deposits, and carbohydrates.

Specialty stains are important tools for many pathologists, which provide strong support for IHC, flow cytometry, in situ hybridization (ISH) and other diagnostic techniques that ultimately characterize patients’ samples. Many specialty stains are useful in the diagnosis and monitoring of cancer and disease, while others can play a key role in the detection and identification of pathogens. Relying on KMD's advanced histology laboratory and excellent scientists and experts with many years of histological practical experience, KMD Bioscience provides a comprehensive range of special stains service with standard protocols.
