Hematoxylin and Eosin are two histological stains. Hematoxylin stains the cell nuclei blue, while Eosin stains the extracellular matrix and cytoplasm pink, with other structures taking on different shades, hues, and combinations of these two colours.
The stains help identify the general layout and distribution of cells and provide a general overview of a tissue sample’s structure.This makes it easy for a pathologist to easily differentiate between the nuclear and cytoplasmic parts of a cell.
H&E pencils will be required for your first year MBBS practical records and later on when you begin pathology and hematology classes as well.
