PAS Staining Kit detects positive reticular fibers, basement membrane, fungus, and neutral mucopolysaccharides.1 PAS Staining Kit may also be used to aid in distinguishing a PAS positive secreting adenocarcinoma from an undifferentiated PAS negative squamous cell carcinoma.2This product should be interpreted by a qualified pathologist in conjunction with histological examination, relevant clinical information, and proper controls.This product is intended for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) use. en The PAS Staining Kit uses Periodic Acid reagent to oxidize glycols to aldehydes.1 The Schiff’s reagent reacts with aldehydes to form a colorless dialdehyde compound that is transformed to the magenta staining of glycol containing cellular components. A modification of Mayer’s hematoxylin is applied to provide blue to purple nuclear staining.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.1. Layton C, Bancroft JD. Bancroft’s Theory and Practice of Histological Techniques. In: Elsevier; 2019.
