SummaryThe present paper gives a review of the actual state of standardization of biological dyes and stains. In a first part general information is given on practical problems encountered by the routine user of dyes with special emphasis on dye contamination. Some theoretical aspects of standardization are discussed. The second part of the paper gives more detailed information on commercial batches of hematoxylin-eosin-, Giemsa- and Papanicolaou-stains and on their standardization. Special… Expand

TLDR
This review starts with a short discussion of what is meant by a pure dye and a brief description of how dyes are produced, followed by technical investigations and assessments of dyes and their impurities including methods for separating, identifying and assaying dye components. Expand
Dye purity and dye standardization for biological staining.
This review starts with a short discussion of what is meant by a pure dye and a brief description of how dyes are produced. A listing of the types of impurities encountered in dyes is made, followedExpand
Standardization of reagents and methods used in cytological and histological practice with emphasis on dyes, stains and chromogenic reagents
TLDR
The problem of how to convince routine dye and stain users of the need for standardization in their histology laboratories is discussed and practical instructions on how to standardize dyes and stains through the preparation of reference materials and the development of chromatographic methods are presented. Expand

TLDR
The essential diagnostic significance of effective nuclear staining by hemalum, providing information on nuclear morphology and texture, is emphasized; as is the ironic advantage for routine diagnostic histopathology of the limited range of colors provided by H & E staining, that allows recognition of significant features under low microscopic magnifications. Expand
A modification of the staining technique of reticular fibres for image analysis of the cardiac collagen network.
TLDR
Gomori's method appears very helpful for the quantitative study of the cardiac collagen network by means of computerized image analysis systems. Expand
Hematoxylin and Eosin Tissue Stain in Mohs Micrographic Surgery: A Review
TLDR
A firm understanding of the principles upon which tissue staining is based and its pitfalls is necessary to readily identify and resolve poor staining quality is necessary. Expand
The use of vital dyes in ocular surgery.
TLDR
Intra-operative vital dyes are finding uses in corneal, glaucoma, orbit, strabismus, and conjunctival surgery, and novel dyes deserve further investigation. Expand
VITAL DYES IN OCULAR SURGERY 577 Biochemistry , Pharmacology , and General Information of Vital Dyes Used in Ocular Surgery
2009 by All rights Abstract. Vital dyes have advanced diagnosis and surgical technique in various specialties, including oncology, gastroenterology, and ophthalmology. In ocular surgery vital dyesExpand
An alternative reference space for H&E color normalization
TLDR
This work developed an alternative representation for H&E images that operates within a space that is more amenable to many of these image processing tools, and demonstrates that this framework can be extended to achieve color normalization, effectively reducing inter-slide variability. Expand
What is the State of the Art of Computer Vision-Assisted Cytology? A Systematic Literature Review
TLDR
There still is a lack of high-quality datasets for many types of stains and most of the works are not mature enough to be applied in a daily clinical diagnostic routine, and a growing tendency towards adopting deep learning-based approaches as the methods of choice. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that ACPR may, in fact, contribute to the standardization of dyes and stains: that computer-directed morphometry and automated image analysis with sophisticated statistical analysis may become major tools in the validation of data on staining. Expand
Standardization of the Romanowsky staining procedure: an overview.
TLDR
There is a need for standardized Romanowsky stains of constant composition, which, when used in conjunction with a carefully controlled specimen preparation technique, should give consistent performance. Expand
The new and reproducible Papanicolaou stain. Morphologic and spectrophotometric observations on the influence of stain composition on staining results.
TLDR
The morphologic and spectroscopic characteristics of a new and reproducible modification of the Papanicolaou stain are briefly described, and the implications for visual and automated cytologic diagnosis are briefly discussed. Expand
Microspectrophotometric studies of Romanowsky stained blood cells
TLDR
A microspectrophotometric study of blood smears stained by a simple, standardized Romanowsky technique, using only the dyes azure B and eosin, shows that the differential colouration of various cell structures may be explained satisfactorily in terms of the varying proportions of only four dye components. Expand
A standardized Romanowsky stain prepared from purified dyes.
TLDR
In this study it was found that the simplest successful stain examined contained methylene blue, azure B, and eosin and was only minimally contaminated with metal salts. Expand
Staining properties and stability of a standardised Romanowsky stain.
TLDR
An evaluation of the standardised Romanowsky stain of Marshall et al. was made, it was noted that this stain had several advantages over the May-Grünwald Giemsa stain used in most British laboratories, including ease and speed of preparation, a shorter staining time, and reproducibility of results.

Standard specimens for stain calibration: application to Romanowsky-Giemsa staining.
TLDR
The standard specimens were shown to be a repeatable substrate for stain uptake and to provide a tool for the quantitative study of staining processes and specimen preparation procedures and for stain calibration. Expand
Standard specimens for stain calibration and their application to the Papanicolaou stain.
Standardized specimens composed of extracts of biologic objects (nucleoprotamine and bovine liver) were developed as tools for the quantitative evaluation of stain performance on biologic substrates.Expand
Studies on Papanicolaou staining. II. Quantitation of dye components bound to cervical cells.
TLDR
It was shown that of the dye components of Papanicolaou stains only aluminum hematein, orange G, light green SF and eosin Y are bound to cervical cells and that their chromophores do not interact. Expand
Papanicolaou staining--a review.
TLDR
It is suggested that differential counterstaining occurs as a consequence of differences in cytoplasmic density, differences in the molecular size of the anionic dyes, and the inhibitory effects of phosphotungstic acid on the binding of small dyes. Expand
