This is a stain solution kit that blackens polysaccharide components of fungal cell wall by using chromic acid and alkaline hexamine-silver complex. Chromic acid oxidizes polysaccharides and forms aldehydes. Then aldehydes reduce alkaline hexamine-silver complex, and the color of cell walls of fungi turns to black.
This solution kit is useful for both room temperature and microwave method.
