Hito Cryo Myelin Stain Kit (Black-Gold/Gold phosphate complex Myelin Staining Kit) is made in a ready-to-use format and offers high quality, rapid staining of myelin/myelinated axons on frozen sections (mounted or floating). This kit has many advantages compared to the traditional Luxol fast blue staining method which is time-consuming, requires usage of 40-56°C incubator, and usually has low yields of stained myelin fibers and unreliable results. In addition, the long time high temperature incubation process of the frozen sections may cause sections felling off from the slides. Hito CryoMyelinStain kit offers a simple solution to these problems. The procedures are simplified and the processing time is greatly reduced. Users can use mounted sections or floating sections at room temperature. This kit delivers stable and improved staining quality. It has been proven to be extremely reliable and sensitive for demonstrating the morphological details of myelin fibers.

Myelin is essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system. Demyelination impairs the conduction of signals in the affected nerves, causing impairment in sensation, movement, and cognition. Currently no cure exists for demyelinating diseases and myelin repair is an active research field. Hito CryoMyelinStain Kit allows sensitive localization and visualization of the myelin fibers, thus offers a fast and reliable way to determine the extent of demyelination [Sample Images: experimental allergic encephalomyelitis (EAE)].
Hito CryoMyelinStain Kit has been tested extensively on the brains and spinal cords from several species of animals and it is a simple solution for your research.
This service includes tissue preparation, sectioning, staining, coverslipping and slide labeling. As a result, you will receive up to all sections and ready for microscopic observations.
If you send us your email quotation, please describe your program with respect to species tested, testing protocols, sample numbers, fixative and any special testing requirements.
