Presentation Transcript

  1. Ex. 5: Acid-Fast and Endospore Stains Objectives: Explain the rationale and procedure for the acid-fast and endospore stains Perform and interpret the acid fast and endospore stains Review the structure and function of endospores

  2. For Acid Fast Bacteria Acid Alcohol Useonly Carbol fuchsin for AFB!! Methylene Blue

  3. Modified Kinyoun’s Acid-fast Stain – Cold Method • Heat fix smear • Primary stain: Carbolfuchsin for AFB, (5 min) • Rinse with water • Decolorize briefly (~10 drops) with acid alcohol (~ 30 sec) • Immediately rinse with water • Counterstain:Methylene blue (1 min) • Rinse with water

  4. Endospore Stain • Heat fix smear • Primary stain: Malachite green, steam (5 min) • Rinse thoroughly with water (~ 30 sec) • Counterstain:Safranin (1 min)

  5. the end
