The use of a fluorochrome staining procedure with either auramine O or auramine-rhodamine is recommended because it is more sensitive and faster than the Ziehl-Neelson staining technique.
In reference to fluorescence fading method, this technique is based on the fluorescent decay lifetime of the fluorochrome when this is exposed to excitation light.
Initially, we developed a mathematical model for single-slide hybridization that included both the random variation (attributable to the sequence of a given gene and the amount of a given RNA in our target sample) and the variables introducing artifactual variability: the fluorochrome, the reverse transcription reaction, and the PCR reaction.
More recent fluorochrome technologies gave immunologists an excellent method for identifying specific antigens in and on cells.
