WRIGHT, WRIGHT GIEMSA AND MAY-GRUNWALD GIEMSA STAINS

NOTE:  Due to the variations in the oxidation of a methylene blue stain, our Wright, Wright Giemsa and May-Grunwald Giemsa stain products are offered with a matched buffer solution of specific pH in order to obtain consistent and uniform staining characteristics from lot to lot. As a result, we recommend our matched buffer solution be used for obtaining optimum results. However, stain and buffer are available separately.

H-PACK* STAIN PACKS
(FOR AMES HEMA-TEK** SLIDE STAINERS)
(WRIGHT, WRIGHT GIEMSA or MAY-GRUNWALD GIEMSA STAIN)

H-PACK* II STAIN PACK
(FOR AMES HEMA-TEK II** SLIDE STAINER)
(MODIFIED WRIGHT GIEMSA)

These stain packs are designed to eliminate problems with precipitate, artifacts, drying of slides, and overstaining which causes abnormal staining characteristics of all cellular elements, i.e., false toxic granulation. One adjustment should be all that is necessary to obtain desired color and intensity. Buffer solution compliments individual stain lots to allow consistent staining characteristics. Normal and abnormal WBC’s and platelets are vividly demonstrated. Bacteria within leukocytes can be clearly observed. RBC staining gives excellent results of normal cellular elements including all abnormalities and inclusion bodies. Parasites, such as malaria, are well-defined. Bone marrow preps can be stained routinely.   Freezing or high temperature will not cause change in staining ability.  Stain pack is designed to be used at room temperature.  SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE.

RECOMMENDED USES: H-PACK* & H-PACK*II may be used on all specimens requiring a WBC differential, particularly spinal fluid and nasal smears, and any procedure requiring a Wright counterstain. Other uses include LE preps, parasitic elements such as malaria, thicker buffy coat smears, mature and immature elements of routine bone marrow smears, inclusion bodies such as basophilic stippling, etc. All stain clearly and distinctly.

RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE: Prior to inserting stain pack, all cannulas, tubing and platen surfaces should be cleaned with methanol.  For optimum results, new tubing should be soaked in methanol. In order to prevent staining inconsistencies or artifacts due to quality of slides or humid conditions affecting the smear, we recommend fixing in methanol. (After fixing, it is not necessary to dry slide prior to insertion into machine.) Crenation of red blood cells can be caused by mechanical changes in preparation of slide prior to staining. H-PACK*:  Place stain pack into your instrument with the cut out holes facing forward. Insert cannulas through plastic bottles until flush. NOTE:  If cannulas are dull and do not puncture bottles smoothly, use an   18 - 20 gauge needle to puncture bottles prior to inserting cannulas.  H-PACK* II: The cannulas are inserted into the appropriate containers of solution. The stain container has two cannulas, one inserted at each end of the container. The buffer and rinse containers have one cannula each.

RECOMMENDATION FOR MACHINE SETTINGS:  Due to the inconsistency in the pump motors of the Ames HEMA-TEK** Slide Stainers and the constant wear of the pump tubing, we recommend that a daily setting be made in order to obtain consistent results from day to day.

H-PACK* WRIGHT, WRIGHT GIEMSA AND MAY-GRUNWALD GIEMSA STAINS:  Ames Hema-Tek** and Ames Hema-Tek ** 1000:  All pumps should initially be set on maximum by rotating the pumps completely to the right. For a more acid (red) stain, keep buffer and rinse pumps on full and reduce stain pumps by rotating setting to the left. For a more alkaline (blue) stain, keep stain and rinse pumps on full and reduce buffer by rotating setting to the left.  Ames Hema-Tek** 2000:  All pumps should initially be set to +2. For a more acid (red) stain, adjust only stain pump by rotating setting to 0 or -2. For a more alkaline (blue) stain, adjust only buffer pump by rotating setting to 0 or -2. Due to the unstable characteristics of formulating a stain pack that contains both a Wright, Giemsa or May-Grunwald stains, the presence of some residue on the platen will be seen after use. It is suggested that the platen surface be cleaned at frequent intervals to prevent build-up of stain residue on the platen.

H-PACK* II WRIGHT GIEMSA STAIN: Since the H-PACK* II stain requires a shorter staining time, both quantities of solution and time may be decreased. Setting the rinse down to the minimum, stain volume and stain intensity control may be decreased yielding excellent staining quality.

NOTE: RINSE SHOULD BE SET ON FULL AT ALL TIMES TO AID IN CLEANING AND DRYING OF SLIDES.

TROUBLESHOOTING COMMON STAINING PROBLEMS:   Ames HEMA-TEK** Slide Stainers:  Change all tubing monthly and flush stain line with methanol. Use 25 gauge needle and syringe and place in stain opening on platen. Remove stain pump tubing and check to determine if methanol is flushing out from rear connector. Clean platen and surrounding wells. Remove all debris and be careful not to bend finger switches. Make sure finger switches are clean and floating freely. Run blank slide through stainer and check pump times. Stain pump should be activated when center of slide is over opening on platen and pump should run for about 8 seconds. Be sure the slide is completely covered with the stain. Buffer pump should be activated when edge of slide is over opening on platen and pump should run for about 45 seconds. Rinse pump should be activated when edge of slide is over opening on platen. This should run for 40 - 45 seconds and pump should remain on full.  Adjust finger switches to correct.

STAT-QUICK STAIN
(WRIGHT OR WRIGHT GIEMSA)

No fixation required with this stain. Utilized in both stat and routine laboratories. Only two solutions are necessary to obtain excellent staining characteristics. Matching buffer solution allows uniform staining of all cellular elements without precipitate or artifactual changes.

RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE: Place slide in stain for 20 seconds. DO NOT AGITATE. Place slide in buffer (water, if used, see NOTE) for 20 seconds depending upon color desired. DO NOT AGITATE.  For a more alkaline (blue) stain, decrease time in buffer solution. For a more acid (red) stain, increase time in buffer solution. To facilitate adequate cleansing of slide, shake 3 - 4 times in buffer solution. Allow to dry.  NOTE:  For more intense staining, increase time in stain and buffer solution. We have noted that in some areas the tap water as well as distilled water varies in pH.This will result in improper staining. We recommend that our buffer solution be used to maintain consistency in staining quality. If water is used, check pH of the water to be in the range of 6.7 to under 6.8.

STAIN CONTAINER SHOULD ALWAYS BE SHAKEN BEFORE USE, and the stain placed in the staining container should be mixed periodically.

IN THE EVENT OF COLD WEATHER, allow solution to return to room temperature and SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE.

MANUAL METHOD STAIN
(WRIGHT OR WRIGHT GIEMSA)

This solution, using a flooding technique, will stain all cellular elements without precipitate or artifactural changes. Staining characteristics are similar to H-PACK*.  Buffer is applied immediately after stain, reducing overall staining time. Convenient flip-top cap for 250 ml and 950 ml sizes.

IN THE EVENT OF COLD WEATHER, allow solution to return to room temperature and SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE.

RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE: We recommend slides be fixed in methanol. Flood slide with stain. Immediately, add equal amount of buffer to fully cover and mix with stain. (Blow gently on slide to adequately mix both buffer and stain.) Stain 5 - 7 minutes depending on color intensity desired. If you desire a more alkaline (blue) stain, decrease staining time. If you prefer a more acid (red) stain, increase staining time. Rinse slide with distilled water and allow to dry before reading.

                                 NATT-HERRICK'S STAIN
              (METHOD FOR STAINING BLOOD FOR WBC COUNTING)

A solution that stains all white blood cells dark violet distinguishing them from red blood cells.

RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE:  Draw venous or capillary blood to the 1.0 mark in a white cell pipette. Draw eosinophil solution to the 11.0 mark and mix gently for 30 seconds. NOTE: Prolonged, vigorous shaking will tend to cause rupturing of eosinophils. Allow to stand between 5 - 15 minutes. Shake again, charge chamber and allow cells to settle before counting.  1.  Prepare a 1:200 dilution of blood with Natt-Herrick's stain (add 20 ul blood to 4 ml of Natt-Herrick's stain).  2.  Mix well, and leave at room temperature for 5 minutes: then fill both sides of a hemocytometer with the stained blood.  3.  After 5 minutes, perform a white blood cell count, using 10X objective.  That is, count all white blood cells in the 4 large corner squares on both sides of the hemocytometer chamber (the counts within each square should be within 10 percent of each other).  Add all 8 counts together and use this total count to calculate.

           Total # WBC's X 2000 = # WBC's/ul blood
                        (8)

All white blood cells will stain  dark violet.

EOSINOPHIL DILUTING FLUID AND STAIN

Eosinophil counts are useful in determining an increase (eosinophilia) or decrease (eosinopenia) in eosinophilic granulocytes. This technique, used to perform an absolute count, requires a special diluent and/or stain solution. This diluting fluid will lyse the erythrocytes and only eosinophils will stain a bright orange-red.

RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE:  Draw venous or capillary blood to the 1.0 mark in a white cell pipette. Draw eosinophil solution to the 11.0 mark and mix gently for 30 seconds. NOTE: Prolonged, vigorous shaking will tend to cause rupturing of eosinophils. Allow to stand between 5 - 15 minutes. Shake again, charge chamber and allow cells to settle before counting.

URINARY SEDIMENT STAIN
(MODIFICATION OF STERNHEIMER AND MALBIN)

A quick staining procedure by which a drop of stain solution is directly added to urine sediment. Neutrophilic leukocytes stain violet with red-purple nuclei. "Glitter" cells stain light blue to almost colorless. Squamous vaginal epithelial cells stain pale purple; nucleus stains dark purple. Bladder epithelial cells are either colorless or a pale blue. Hyaline casts stain a delicate pink to rose shade. Granulation stains red violet, or blue in granular casts. WBC, REC, epithelial, and cellular casts are easily recognized by the intense staining characteristics of cellular inclusions. Fatty cells have a bright honeycomb-like structure in a slightly stained matrix. Bacteria stain pink when living and active; dark purple when dead. Yeast cells may stain dark purple or they may not take the stain at all. Trichomonas parasites are either colorless or pale blue. RBC’s stain faintly.

MALARIAL QUICK STAIN KIT
(NON-ALCOHOLIC)

Solution I - Buffered Stain
Solution II - Buffered Eosin

A combination of water-based buffered stains (pH range = 6.8 to 7.2) whereby the RBC’s are hemolyzed allowing the malarial parasites to be stained. Thick films provide a greater volume of blood and therefore, larger numbers of organisms for examination. However, characteristic definitive morphologic criteria may be more difficult to see. The cytoplasm of white blood cells will stain with eosinophils predominant.

RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE:  Allow blood film to air dry completely. DO NOT FIX IN ALCOHOL OR HEAT. Place enough of Sol. I and Sol. II into two separate coplin jars. Place unfixed blood smear in Sol. I for 1 - 3 seconds. Remove and rinse under tap water until all stain is removed. Place in Sol. II for 2 seconds. Rinse under tap water 2 - 3 seconds and allow to dry.

SUDAN BLACK B STAIN KIT

Solution I - Sudan Black B
Solution II - Buffer
Solution III - Alcohol (Ethanol, 70%)
Solution IV - Harris’ Alum Hematoxylin

This technique may be substituted for the benzidine-peroxidase method used for the differential diagnosis of acute granulocytic leukemia, acute lymphocytic and acute myelo-monocytic leukemia.

RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE:  Working Solution: Prepare as needed by mixing 60 ml of Sol. I with 40 ml of Sol. II. Filter, using suction.  Fixation:  Place several pieces of filter paper in the bottom of a Coplin jar with screw-top lid. Moisten with 3 - 4 drops of 37% formaldehyde. Place air-dried smears in Coplin jar and cap tightly. Fix for 10 minutes. Wash in running water for 2 minutes. Place smears in working solution for 30 - 60 minutes. Wash in Sol. III for 30 - 60 seconds to remove excess stain. Wash in tap water for 2 minutes. Counterstain in Sol. IV for 10 minutes. Wash in tap water for 5 minutes.

RESULTS:  Lymphocytes and normoblasts are not stained with Sudan Black B. Normal granulocyte precursors from blast cells onward show increasing sudanophilia corresponding roughly to the granules present. Promyelocytes contain a few sudanophilic granules, while mature polymorphonuclear neutrophils contain large numbers of sudanophilic granules. Auer bodies are intensely sudanophilic.

Charge hemacytometer and place in humidified chamber to avoid evaporation if unable to read immediately.  Count the number of spermatazoa in 2 sq. mm and add 5 zeros to obtain the number per ml. Vitality Staining:  Mix a drop of semen with 2 drops Sol. IIA. Add 4 drops of Sol. IIB, mix gently and prepare smears. Fix by heat. Staining For White Cells, Red Cells, Spermatozoa Morphology, etc.:  Smear a drop of semen on a clean glass slide. Place in Sol. IIIA for 20 seconds, followed by Sol. IIIB for 20 seconds.

RESULTS: Total Count:   60,000,000 and higher. Vitality Stain:  Dead, non-viable spermatozoa will stain red, while viable spermatozoa will be unstained (The Blom Technique). Stain For Cells, etc.:   Similar to Wright Stain.

CSF DILUTING FLUID
(FOR WBC COUNTING)

A diluting fluid that hemolyzes all red cells and stains white cells for easy differentiation.

RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE:  Cell counts on spinal fluid should be made within 30 minutes after withdrawal of the specimen to avoid cell disintegration. Draw the specimen to the 1.0 mark (WBC pipette). Draw the diluting fluid to mark 11.0, producing a dilution of 1:10. Mix, discard one third, and place a drop on each side of the counting chamber. Count the cells in five squares. 1 sq. mm each (four corner squares and the central square), in both drops. Add the result of all 10 squares counted. Multiply by 10 to obtain the number of cells in 1 cmm. Use high power for a differential WBC count.

NOTE:  In some cases, to prevent possible coagulation of the spinal fluid due to the high protein-blood specimen, aqueous sodium citrate may be added in 1:100 dilution. Oxalates are unsatisfactory because the crystals interfere with counting.

FETAL HEMOGLOBIN-DIFFERENTIAL STAIN KIT
(MODIFIED KLEIHAUER TECHNIQUE)

(UNAVAILABLE)

Solution I - Citric Acid 0.lM
Solution II - Disodium Phosphate 0.2M
Solution III - Mayer’s Acid Alum Hematoxylin
Solution IV - 0.1% Aqueous Eosin

This procedure, a modification of the Kleihauer Technique, is based on the resistance of fetal hemoglobin to acid conditions. By drying and fixation with ethanol, hemoglobin is precipitated within the red cells. Air-dried and fixed blood films are treated with a citric acid-phosphate buffer of low pH. Adult hemoglobin is rapidly eluted but HbF remains precipitated and is stained with eosin.

RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE:   Prepare thin (monolayer) blood films of capillary or fresh EDTA-anticoagulated blood and fix in 80% ethanol for 5 minutes. Rinse with water and allow to dry. Pipette 37.7 ml of Sol. I and 12.3 ml of Sol. II into a coplin jar and place in a 37oC water bath. When solution reaches 37oC, place fixed slide in coplin jar for 5 minutes. Move slides up and down a few times to ensure adequate elution of hemoglobin from cells. Remove slides and rinse with water. Stain with Sol. III for 1 - 4 minutes. Rinse with water. Stain with Sol. IV for 1 minute. Rinse with water and dry. Examine under low power for occasional eosin staining cells. Oil immersion is used for the pale ghosts cells that do not stain with eosin.

RESULTS:  RBC’s containing HbF stain brilliantly with eosin, while those without HbF appear as colorless "ghosts". The hematoxylin stains the WBC nuclei to prevent misinterpretation as eosin-positive cells.

FETAL HEMOGLOBIN - DIFFERENTIAL STAINING KIT
(MODIFIED KLEIHAUER OR MODIFIED CLAYTON TECHNIQUE)
ROOM TEMPERATURE PROCEDURE (RTP)

(UNAVAILABLE)

Modified Kleihauer Technique:
Solution I - Fixative
Solution II - Citric Acid/Phosphate Buffer
Solution III - Mayer’s Acid Alum Hematoxylin
Solution IV - Eosin 0.1% Aqueous

Modified Clayton Technique:
Solution I - Fixative
Solution II - Citric Acid /Phosphate Buffer
Solution III - Eosin 0.1% Aqueous

This product has been developed to employ a new modified Kleihauer procedure for fetal hemoglobin that does not require heat as in the old modified Kleihauer technique. This test can now be performed at room temperature. We recommend the use of hematoxylin for staining the WBC’s so as to avoid misidentification of eosin-positive cells. This is done with the new Kleihauer technique rather than the new Clayton technique.

These procedures are based upon the resistance of fetal hemoglobin to acid conditions. Fixation of the smear allows hemoglobin to precipitate within the RBC. The Citric acid/Phosphate buffer solution eludes the adult hemoglobin. Fetal hemoglobin remains precipitated and stains bright red with eosin, making for easy differentiation. In the new and old Kleihauer procedure, WBC’s are counterstained with hematoxylin to avoid misidentification as eosin-positive cells.

RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE:  Prepare thin (monolayer) blood films of capillary or fresh EDTA-anticoagulated blood and fix in Sol. I for 5 minutes. Rinse with distilled water and allow to dry. Place slide in Sol.II or flood to elude 5 - 10 minutes. Rinse with distilled water. Stain with Sol. III for 1 - 4 minutes and rinse with distilled water. Stain with Sol. IV for 2 - 6 minutes. Rinse again in distilled water and allow time to dry.Prepare thin (monolayer) blood films of capillary or fresh EDTA-anticoagulated blood and fix in Sol. I for 5 minutes.
