Tests Using Tetramethylbenzidine, Leucomalachite Green, and Phenolphthalein:
We repeated the procedure previously described using the reagents tetramethylbenzidine, leucomalachite green, and phenolphthalein, but the tests were only performed on stains on filter paper.
[12] It is reduced to some extent in the body to leucomalachite green, which has a longer half-life.
