Identification and evaluation of a thinning agent compatible with MegaCell DCS, an animal product-free corneal storage medium
Results are presented of Janus green vital staining of the corneal endothelium. The dye stains nuclei and mitochondria of non-vital cells and is therefore useful for evaluation of morphologic aspects of endothelial cells. The dye is too toxic for clinical use. The dye can be used in combination with alizarin red staining of the intercellular borders.
