Hematoxylin

What is Hematoxylin?

 

Hematoxylin is the key ingredient in stains used by biological laboratories and pathologists for cancer screening (H&E Stain) and other procedures. Nearly 80% of the world’s cancer diagnoses are done with the H&E Stain and Abbey Color is proud to provide both to the market.

 

Hematoxylin is a derivative of logwood extract, which is produced from the logwood tree. Due to overharvesting and poor supply chain management, there have been logwood shortages in the past. In respect to the incredible importance of hematoxylin (and its logwood extract partner, hematine) to global healthcare, Abbey Color has partnered with Abby Mex to ensure a consistent and high quality supply of both hematoxylin and hematine to the market.
