Hepatic tissue stained with Oil Red O. Lipid id red and nucleus is blue.



1 For freshly tissue frozen section, firstly fix with formalin followed by stain. If tissue is firstly fixed with formalin before frozen section, air dry sections and then stain.

2 Be gently during the whole process. Rude action may result in lipid loss or shift.

3 The obtained staining slides cannot be preserved long-term. Carry out the microscopy examination as soon as possible after mount.

4 The glycerine jelly is solid under room temperature, and it is better preserved at 60℃ in oven. If bubbles produce during mounting, don’t press or pull apart the coverslip to avoid lipid shift. Immerse the slides in warm water to let the coverslip break off. Then remount the slides with glycerine jelly.
