JorVet J-324 New Methylene Blue Stain Indications

Used for reticulocyte counts, determining blood parasites and evaluating vaginal smears. New methylene blue can be used in wet mount preparation or in the more conventional air dried mount.

Directions For Use

Reticulocyte count/Heartworm screen.

1. Two drops of blood and an equal amount of stain are left mixed for 15 to 20 minutes in a small test tube. A slide is then prepared from the mixture in the usual manner. The reticulum will stain intensely blue and the erythrocytes are seen as ghost outlines. The reticulocyte count is expressed in percentage after counting 500 RBCS.

Dry unfixed blood or cytology.

2. One drip of stain is applied evenly over the dried film. The slide is immediately ready to read. Also since the stain is contained in physiology saline, the film is not permanent and will only last a few hours.

Gently shake before use.

Storage

Keep covered. Store at room temperature.

Presentation: 250 mL bottle.
