Elastic Fiber EVG Stain


Intended Use

Elastic fiber EVG stain is useful in demonstrating hyperplasia, fracture, rupture, or fragmentation of elastic tissue as an aid of diagnosis. Observe collagen fiber and muscle fiber via counterstaing with VG Solution.


The principle of this method is not well-known. Hypothesis includes that hydrogen bond forms between certain parts of elastic fiber and phenolic group of resorcin in Elastin Stain, consequently the elastic fiber is stained blue-black. VG stain is counterstaining.
