This product is ideal for Stat, routine or back-up staining. Volu-Sol has developed the proprietary mixture Stat Stain to rapidly stain blood smear (10-15 seconds) and bone marrow (20-30 seconds). Our unique manufacturing process generates finely dispersed stain particles which yield excellent color intensity and morphological differentiation. This stain eliminates many of the steps involved in the Wright-Giemsa staining procedure; it includes the buffer within the stain, allowing use of deionized or distilled water as a buffer and rinse. Procedure step elimination and shortened staining times make "manual methods" faster than "automated" systems, requiring very little technologist time. Blood smears take less than a minute from start to finish with distilled or deionized water as a suitable buffer and rinse. This product is available in both Wright-Giemsa (Stat Stain) and Wright's (Statim Stain) formulations.
