  • Biological description

    Stain for microscopy that functions by rearranging chromatin and inducing G bands producing a high quality stain for chromatin and the nuclear membrane. Used for the histopathologic detection of malaria and other parasites such as spirochete and protozoan. Has also been incorporated in differential staining between bacterial and human cells. Used in combination with May-Grunwald or Wright Stain as a histological hematology stain. However, the May-Grunwald-Giemsa procedure produces a more intense coloration than Wright-Giemsa.
