Giemsa stain is a staining reagent that was developed in the early 20th century by Gustav Giemsa to aid in cellular microscopy. Different cells and parts of cells stain slightly different colors, allowing appropriate diagnoses to be made.
When staining blood and bone marrow smears, the pH of the staining solution and/or buffer is a critical factor. Technical Procedure Immersion Staining Protocol 1. Thoroughly dry blood or bone marrow smears. 2. Fix smears in absolute methanol for 15 seconds to 5 minutes 3. Stain smears in Wright-Giemsa Stain Solution for 1 minute. 4.
Giemsa stain is a gold standard staining technique that is used for both thin and thick smears to examine blood for malaria parasites, a routine check-up for other blood parasites and to morphologically differentiate the nuclear and cytoplasm of Erythrocytes, leucocytes and Platelets and parasites.

Cardinal Health™ Modified Wright-Giemsa Stain Pack provides high quality stain performance for use on the Hematek® Slide Stainers. This stain pack is used for staining blood smears for differential diagnosis to identify and quantitate blood cell types.
Wright and Giemsa stains are Romanowsky stains used to stain peripheral blood and bone marrow smears. The most important components of these stains are oxidized methylene blue, azure B and eosin Y dyes. The eosin Y dye stains the cytoplasm of cells an orange to pink color.
Wright Stain, Modified has been used in hematological assays, to obtain the differential count of leukocytes. Popular hematology stain used for differentially staining the cellular elements of blood. For dip, rack, and batch staining techniques. Other Notes Wright stain, 0.3%, buffered at pH 6.8 in methanol.
James Wright and William Leishman modified the stain by adding methanol in 1902. In the same year, Gustav Giemsa culminated Wright and Leishman’s modifications by adding glycerol in order to synthesize a neutral stain with a greater chemical purity. Many observers note that Giemsa’s Stain yields great color intensity, sharpness of cellular ...
Wright's stain is a hematologic stain that facilitates the differentiation of blood cell types. It is classically a mixture of eosin (red) and methylene blue dyes. It is used primarily to stain peripheral blood smears, urine samples, and bone marrow aspirates, which are examined under a light microscope.In cytogenetics, it is used to stain chromosomes to facilitate diagnosis of syndromes and ....
