Microscope slides smeared with samples containing microorganisms are stained to differentiate between Gram positive and negative microorganisms.
Only fresh reagents are applied to the slides so there is no chance of slide-to-slide cross-contamination. The reagent consumption is very low and throughput is high using either a 12- or 30- slide carousel. The slides are dry and ready for the microscope in minutes, giving superior results.
And with the addition of the optional Cytopro® Cytocentrifuge Rotor, the Gram is also able to deposit cells onto microscope slides.
