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, RBC, 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.

PRUSSIAN BLUE STAIN KIT
(FOR HEMOSIDERIN IN URINE)

Solution I - 2% Potassium Ferrocyanide
Solution II - 1% Hydrochloric Acid

RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE:   Working solution:  Just prior to use, mix 5 ml of Sol. I with 5 ml of Sol. II. Hemosiderin in urine appears as yellow-brown granules seen either free or within epithelial cells and occasionally in casts. Examine several drops of a centrifuged urine specimen for coarse brown granules. If coarse brown granules are present, resuspend the remainder of the sediment in the working solution and allow to remain for 10 minutes. Centrifuge specimen, discard supernatant and examine microscopically. NOTE:  The use of chemically clean glassware and plastic-tipped or paraffin-coated forceps is suggested.

RESULTS:  Coarse granules of hemosiderin stain blue.

FECAL STAIN KIT

Solution I - Ethanol 95%
Solution II - Sudan IV
Solution III - Acetic Acid (36%)
Solution IV - Loeffler’s Methylene Blue

Specifically for use in the microscopic examination of fecal material for fatty acids and neutral fats, as well as fecal leukocytes.

RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE: Neutral Fats:  Place a small aliquot of fecal suspension on a clean glass slide. Mix with 2 drops of Sol. I. Add and mix 2 drops of Sol. II. Coverslip and read microscopically. Fatty Acids:  Place a small aliquot of fecal suspension on a clean, glass slide. Mix with 2 drops of Sol. III. Add and mix 2 drops of Sol. II. Coverslip and heat to boiling for a few seconds. Examine microscopically under high power while still warm.  Fecal Leukocytes:    Place a small aliquot of mucus or liquid stool on a clean, glass slide. Add 2 drops of Sol. IV and mix. Coverslip and allow to stand for 2 - 3 minutes before examining microscopically.

NOTE:   Fresh material should be used for optimum results.

RESULTS:  Neutral fats form yellow to pale orange refractile globules. Fatty acids appear as deep orange globules. To determine the presence of fecal leukocytes, examine stained specimen under low power. Differential counts (mononuclear or polymorphonuclear cells only) should be performed under high power.

FECAL LEUKOCYTE STAIN
(LOEFFLER’S METHYLENE BLUE)

Specifically used in the microscopic identification and counting of fecal leukocytes.

RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE:  Place a small aliquot of mucus or liquid stool on a clean glass slide. Add 2 drops of Loeffler’s methylene blue and mix. Coverslip and allow to stand for 2 - 3 minutes before examining microscopically. NOTE:  Fresh material should be used for optimum results.

RESULTS:  Fecal leukocytes stained with Loeffler’s methylene blue can be visualized under low power. Differential counts (mononuclear or polymorphonuclear cells only) should be performed under high power.

METHYLENE BLUE SOLUTIONS
(AQUEOUS)

Solutions are used as a counterstain or for wet mount preparation.

RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE:   A small amount of feces is picked up with an applicator stick and thoroughly mixed with a large drop of methylene blue solution. The mixture is covered with a coverslip and sealed. The preparation should be examined within approximately 30 minutes.

RESULTS: Trophozoite nuclei are stained blue with a lighter cytoplasm. Inclusions of the nuclei are also stained. After a time, the organisms become over-stained and are no longer identifiable.
