Hematoxylin and Eosin

What is the H&E Stain?

 

Abbey Color is the only dye manufacturer in the world that manufactures both Hematoxylin and Eosin Y, and we are a leading supplier of both dyes to the global market.

 

Abbey Color’s Hematoxylin and Eosin Y are both certified by the Biological Stain Commission (BSC). Hematoxylin and Eosin Y are the key ingredients in stains used by biological laboratories and pathologists.

 

Hematoxylin is an excellent nuclear stain that is used widely in cytology and histology, two of the most important uses being as a nuclear stain in the Papanicolaou procedure (PAP Smear) for the diagnosis of vaginal cancer and in combination with the contrast stain Eosin Y (H & E Stain), which is the chief diagnostic tool for most other cancers.

 

Eosin Y is a remarkable bright red dye that benefits a myriad of applications with the effectiveness of its intense color. Hematoxylin is a tan powdered/crystalline compound. Abbey Color provides Hematoxylin with the empirical molecular formula C16H14O6.
