Product Details

Gram's Stain Kit for Bacteria Slide Staining
by Innovating Science

Bacteria are divided into two main groups: Gram-positive, and Gram-negative. This kit provides you with the required stains for both groups, as well as a step-by-step guide that describes how to properly stain the bacteria on your microscope slides. SDS (successor of the MSDS) sheets are included for each of the chemical reagents.

The Gram-positive bacteria will absorb the Crystal violet stain in their thick peptidoglycan layer, and appear under a microscope in a purple color. Examples of Gram-positive bacteria include those related to Staphylococcus and Streptococcus.

Gram-negative bacteria, with their much thinner peptidoglycan layer will not retain the Crystal violent when put through an alcohol wash. Because of this a counterstain such as Safranin or Fuschine is required. This kit uses Safranin O. Examples of Gram-negative bacteria include E. coli, Salmonella, and Legionella.

The chemicals included in this Gram's Stain Kit include:

  • 30mL Gram's Iodine Stain
  • 30mL Safranin O Solution
  • 30mL Crystal Violet Solution
  • 25mL Denatured Ethyl Alcohol
