Note positive staining in nonneoplastic colonic mucosa (A) but negative staining
in nonneoplastic small intestinal mucosa (B; original magnifications X40 [A] and X100 [B]).
2) to compare the sensitivity of negative staining
of Heine with modified negative staining
In terms of diagnosis of malignancy, the combination of cytology and positive staining for CEA as well as negative staining
for CAL reached a diagnosis in 29 of 30 metastatic adenocarcinoma cases, with 97% sensitivity, 100% specificity and 98% accuracy.
Knob-tike protrusions found on the surfaces of SVs, apparent after negative staining
, have previously been regarded as the vacuolar ATP-dependent proton pump (V-ATPase) (Wilkens et al.
3] positive sites on the long arm, probably indicating AgNOR, while with the fluorochrome DAPI these regions showed negative staining
and were therefore rich in GC bases.
WITH DIFFERENT HEAVY METAL SALT SOLUTIONS
Histochemical stains showed negative staining
for PAS with diastase predigestion (dPAS), and in a few epithelial cases, mucicarmine stained focal areas.
Kedersha turned to negative staining
, a microscopy method as simple as it is messy.
NanoImaging offers a variety of services, from visual inspection and statistical characterization to sophisticated 3D reconstruction and antibody/labeling experiments, using TEM procedures that range from conventional negative staining
to advanced cryo techniques with automated image acquisition and analysis.

Immunohistochemistry revealed positive staining with S-100 protein, Vimentin, smooth muscle actin (SMA) and negative staining
for Estrogen and Progesterone Receptors.
