Jones Periodic Acid is used to oxidize carbohydrates to aldehyde groups. The combined Jones Silver A and Jones Silver B solutions form a methenaminesilver complex that is easily reduced to metallic silver by the aldehyde groups. To enhance staining contrast, toning of tissue specimen is completed using gold chloride within the Toner reagent. Fixer, with thiosulfate, stops the reaction and removes any unreduced silver from the section.5,8 Nuclei are stained with Jones Hematoxylin and Jones Eosin is applied to provide a contrasting background.This kit is optimized for use on BenchMark Special Stains instruments. The reagents are applied to tissue on microscope slides and mixed over the entire specimen.5. Bancroft JD, Layton C. Connective and Other Mesenchymal Tissues with TheirStains.
