Part Descriptions

LP40224-5   Microscopic observation
Microscopy is a technique that uses microscopes to examine very small objects, not seen by the naked eye. There are three well-known branches of microscopy: optical, electron and scanning probe microscopy. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.

LP262570-7   Auramine fluorochrome stain
The auramine O fluorochrome stain is a histological technique used to detect acid-fast bacilli (AFB) (e.g. Mycobacterium) using fluorescence microscopy. The test is may be performed to detect tuberculosis (TB). In auramine O stains, organisms stain bright golden yellow and non-specific debris stain pale yellow.[WHO: tb/laboratory/mycobacteriology-laboratory-manual.pdf] Fluorochrome stains are more sensitive than the Ziehl-Neelsen (ZN) method because the organisms stain brighter and the smear can be examined under a lower magnification, allowing more fields to be read in the same amount of time.
