Routine Histology

Routine staining and special stains are a core element of tissue-based diagnosis and/or research. Colorization of otherwise transparent tissue sections allows identification of particular cell types, structures and microorganisms.

In histopathology, the term “routine staining” refers to the hematoxylin and eosin stain (H&E) that is utilized as the “routine” stain on tissue specimens to reveal underlying tissue structures and conditions.
