Importance of Hematoxylin Manufacturing

Due to the widespread use of hematoxylin and its importance in medical histology, a steady and consistent supply is critical to the public health. In the 1970s, there was a worldwide shortage of hematoxylin. Abbey Color was instrumental in solving this crisis and established itself as the leading hematoxylin manufacturer.

What is Hematoxylin?

Hematoxylin is a yellow or red crystalline compound, the coloring material of logwood, used in dyes, inks, and stains and used in histological dyes and as an indicator. (Sources: The Free Dictionary – Hematoxylin and The Medical Free Dictionary – Hematoxylin). Hematoxylin is an organic dye. Further,

Haematoxylin, hematoxylin, Natural Black 1, or C.I. 75290 is extracted from the wood of the logwood tree. When oxidised it forms haematein, a compound with rich blue-purple colour, and is used, together with a suitable mordant (most commonly Fe(III) or Al(III) salts), to stain cell nuclei prior to examination under a microscope. Structures that stain with haematoxylin are called basophilic.
