Staining part 1 : 

Staining part 1 Dr.Reena Gopinathan, 1st Year PG, DEPT. of Microbiology, Medical college, Thrissur. 1

Staining : 

Staining Staining is a technique used in microscopy to enhance contrast in the microscopic image Stains are dyes which are used to highlight microorganisms or biological tissues for viewing with the help of a microscope 2

Aims of Staining in microbiology : 

Aims of Staining in microbiology To increase visibility & contrast To study the morphology To detect extracellular and intracellular components of microbes To help in the primary level of diagnosis 3

Methods of making film/smear : 

Methods of making film/smear Film / smear preparations are made usually on 3x1’’ glass slides Slides should be superior quality and grease free If the grease free slide is not provided with, should clean the slides 4

Cleaning of slides : 

Cleaning of slides Method 1 Wipe the slide with dry cotton cloth Pass the slide through blue flame of Bunsen flame 16-12 times Method 2 Moisten the finger with water, rub it on the surface of fine sand soap Smear it over the slide Remove soapy film with clean cotton cloth 5

Cover slips : 

Cover slips Should be ¾ or 7/8 inches 0.1 mm thickness Should be used only for wet preparations 6

Making films : 

Making films Take a clean slide A target circle of approximately 1.5 cm diameter should be marked on the under surface of slide Place a loopful of liquid bacterial suspension on the circled area Spread the suspension with a Nichrome wire loop Allow the slide to air dry completely 7

Making smears from various specimens : 

Making smears from various specimens Purulent specimen Use sterile wire loop Make a thin smear If needed put a drop of saline Non Purulent specimen Make a smear from a drop of well mixed specimen Culture Emulsify a colony in sterile distilled water Use sterile wire loop Make a thin smear 8

Making smears from various specimens .. .. .. : 

Making smears from various specimens .. .. .. Sputum Use a broom stick Transfer a purulent part to the slide Spread evenly Swabs Roll the swab on a slide If needed put a drop of saline Faeces Use a broom stick Transfer a mucopurulent part to the slide Spread evenly 9

Fixing of slides : 

Fixing of slides Heat fixation By passing the slide over flame Chemical fixation Using ethanol Methanol Picric acid Potassium permanganate Formaldehyde vapour 10

fixation - procedure : 

fixation - procedure Three quick passes over the flame is sufficient for fixation Chemical fixation is just applying few drops of chemicals and allow to evaporate 11

fixation - uses : 

fixation - uses It kills bacteria rendering safe handling It prevents autolysis by inactivating the autolytic enzymes It increases the permeability of cells to stain It makes cells rigid It unfolds the globular proteins and exposing reactive groups & increasing affinity for stain 12

METHODS OF STAINING : 

METHODS OF STAINING Simple staining Differential staining Special staining 13

Simple staining : 

Simple staining 14

types : 

types Monochrome staining / positive staining Negative / indirect staining 15

Monochrome staining / positive staining - principle : 

Monochrome staining / positive staining - principle Basic dyes are used for this Basic dyes are Positively charged These dyes get attached to negatively charged cytoplasm of microbial organism 16

Negative / indirect stainingprinciple : 

Negative / indirect stainingprinciple Acidic dyes are used for this Acidic dyes are negatively charged These dyes get repelled by the negatively charged cytoplasm of microbial organism So the dye get gathered around the organism They give a contrast back ground Organism stands unstained 17

Monochrome staining : 

Monochrome staining The use of single stain to colour the bacteria is known as monochrome staining Usual stains used are Crystal violet Loeffler’s Methylene blue Dilute carbol fuchsin 18

Crystal violet : 

Crystal violet Crystal violet 10 gm Absolute alcohol 100ml Distilled water 1 litre Dissolve the dye in alcohol Filter through filter paper Add to water 19

Loeffler’s Methylene blue : 

Loeffler’s Methylene blue Saturated solution of methylene blue in alcohol 300 ml KOH, 0.01% in water 1 litre Dissolve & mix thoroughly 20

Carbol fuchsin - strong :

Carbol fuchsin - weak : 

Carbol fuchsin - weak Dilute 1 volume of strong Carbol fuchsin with 10-20 volumes of distilled water. 22

Procedure Monochrome staining : 

Procedure Monochrome staining Cover the fixed smear with stain If Crystal violet keep stain for 2-6 sec If Methylene blue 3-5 min If Dilute Carbol fuchsin 15-30sec Wash under running water Blot dry Examine under oil immersion 23

Salutes .. .. .. Hans Christian Gram 13-09-1853 to 14-11-1938. Danish bacteriologist. The work with Gram staining gained him international reputation 31

Gram’s staining : 

Gram’s staining Gram staining is a microbiological procedure that categorizes bacteria based on the physical and chemical structure of their outer surface 32

Gram’s method - principle : 

Gram’s method - principle The cell wall of gram positive bacteria contains high amount of Peptidoglycan and negligible amount of lipids The cell wall of gram negative bacteria have very negligible Peptidoglycan and high amount of lipids The primary basic Stain, stains both kind of cells 33

Gram’s method – principle .. : 

Gram’s method – principle .. In second step when iodine add, it act as a mordant and form crystal violet iodine Peptidoglycan complex in gram positive bacteria This complex is not formed in gram negative bacteria as Peptidoglycan is much less in their cell wall 34

Gram’s method – principle .. : 

Gram’s method – principle .. In the next step, application of decolorizer extract the lipids from the gram negative bacteria Removal of lipid makes the cell porous Porosity allows the release of primary stain from cell Gram negative cells become colourless at this step This colourless bacteria took the counter stain 35
