Hito Oil Red O OptimStain™ Kit is designed based on the Oil Red O staining method. Oil Red O is a common staining technique for studying the morphology of lipids in adipose tissue. It allows localization and visualization of the lipids in the aortic sinus and aorta to determine the extent of atherosclerosis, and remains as one of the primary techniques for visualization of the atherosclerosis pattern at the aortic sinus. Accordingly, Oil Red O staining techniques are not only useful for tissue histology studies, but also widely used in cell biological studies examining intracellular lipid metabolism.
Hito Oil Red O OptimStain™ Kit makes further improvement over the Oil Red O method and simplifies the staining technique. It offers high quality, rapid, reliable and easy to use staining of the lipids and fat.
Hito Oil Red O OptimStain™ Kit has been tested extensively on the hearts and arteries from several species of animals and is sensitive for demonstrating the morphological details of lipids. It is a simple solution for your research.
