After this staining procedure, the Acid-fast cells will appear pink because the primary stain, Ziel’s carbol fuschion, has been driven into the bacteria’s waxy cell wall with the heat from the water bath. Acid-fast cells also typically clump together, due to the wax in their cell wall. Alternative staining techniques (Kinyoun or acid fast stain) are therefore used that take advantage of the resistance to destaining after lengthier initial staining. Growth Requirements: Microorganisms can be grouped on the basis of their need for oxygen to grow. Facultatively anaerobic bacteria can grow in high oxygen or low oxygen.
ACID-FAST STAINING The Ziehl–Neelsen stain, also known as the acid-fast stain, widely used differential staining procedure. The Ziehl – Neelsen stain was first described by two German doctors; Franz Ziehl ( to ), a bacteriologist and Friedrich Neelsen ( to ) a pathologist. In this type some bacteria resist. ADVERTISEMENTS: Experiment on performing acid-fast staining of a bacteria to find out whether it is acid-fast or non-acid-fast! Purpose: Most of the bacteria can be stained, either by simple basic staining or by gram staining, as their cells take up stains easily. ADVERTISEMENTS: However, some bacteria possess a thick waxy cell wall made of lipid [ ].
One of the major objectives of this exercise is to give the student expertise in acid-fast staining. To allow the student to differentiate between acid-fast and non-acid-fast bacteria, the authors have chosen one of the cultures from the last exercise, Escherichia coli. E. coli is . C.

The Gram‐negative bacteria subsequently stain with the safranin dye, the counterstain, used next. These bacteria appear red under the oil‐immersion lens, while Gram‐positive bacteria appear blue or purple, reflecting the crystal violet retained during the washing step.
Another differential stain technique is the acid‐fast technique. Start studying Acid-Fast and Endospore Staining. Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools. Name of Acid-Fast Stain Method. Ziehl-Neelsen Method. What type of stain is Acid-Fast stain. Acid-fast bacteria can retain the primary stain even when treated with decolorizer acid-alcohol.
Staining is a technique used to enhance contrast in samples, generally at the microscopic level. Stains and dyes are frequently used in histology (the study of tissue under the microscope) and in the medical fields of histopathology, hematology, and cytopathology that focus on the study and diagnoses disease at a microscopic level.
Stains may be used to define biological tissues (highlighting.

Acid-fast stain: After staining with basic fuchsin, acid-fast bacteria resist decolonization by acid-alcohol.
Non-acid-fast bacteria are counterstained with methylene blue. Used to distinguish acid-fast bacteria such as M. tuberculosis, from non-acid-fast cells. Acid-fast bacteria are.
A test method is described for the distinction of gramnegative from grampositive gative bacteria are aminopeptidase positive and can be detected by a colour reaction. Common Questions1 Principles of Gram Staining and its uses.2 Name common/pathogenic Gram positive and Gram negative Bacteria3 Why some bacteria are Gram positive and others Gram negative.4 Why some bacteria cannot be stained by Gram’s Method of staining.5 What is the Use of Gram staining in your future clinical.
Acid fastness in the property of certain bacteria (mycobacteria), their structures (spores) or protozoal forms (oocyts of cryptosporidium) by virtue of which, they resist decolourization by weak mineral acids following staining by an intense dye (strong carbol fuchsin).
Most common of the acid fast staining techniques is the Ziehl-Neelsen. Acridine Orange Stain: This staining method is used to confirm the presence of bacteria in blood cultures when Gram stain results are difficult to interpret or when the presence of bacteria is highly suspected but none are detected using light ne orange binds to nucleic acid and stains them.
It is also used for the detection of mycoplasmas (cell wall deficient bacteria). The main aim of this staining is to differentiate bacteria into acid fast group and non-acid fast groups. This method is used for those microorganisms which are not staining by simple or Gram staining method, particularly the member of genus Mycobacterium, are resistant and can only be visualized by acid-fast staining.
During the Acid-fast staining technique, a slide-shaped piece of blotting paper is placed over the bacterial smear, a bright pink dye (Ziehl’s carbolfuchsin) is then applied to the blotting paper, and the slide and paper are placed over a water bath (a steaming pot of water covered with a screen) for 3 – 5 minutes.
Bacterial Spores: Structure, Importance and examples of spore forming bacteria Ap Acharya Tankeshwar Bacteriology, Microbiology for Beginners 7 Bacterial spores are highly resistant, dormant structures (i.e.
no metabolic activity) formed in response to adverse environmental conditions. Wash in water, dry, and mount. The spores will be red; the bacteria, blue. The most satisfactory spore-staining method is really the negative staining of the spore obtained when a bacterial preparation is stained by dilute carbolfuchsin or Löffler's methylene-blue.
The spore appears as a highly refractile piece of glass in a colored frame. Acid-fast bacteria include the Mycobacteria and some of the Nocardia. The acid-fast staining property results from the presence of membrane glycolipids and very long chain 2-alkylhydroxy fatty acids (mycolic acids) bound to the peptidoglycan.
In mycobacteria, up to 60% of the dry weight of the cell envelope consists of lipid. Gram staining provides a rapid method for the initial identification of bacteria involved in infections.
Similarly, the acid-fast staining procedure helps to specifically identify the organisms belonging to the class of bacteria called Mycobacteria, such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
Acid Fast Stain, Bacterial Capsules & Bacterial Endospores Acid Fast Stain The small pink bacilli above are Mycobacterium smegmatis, an acid fast bacteria because they retain the primary dye.
The darker staining cocci are Staphylococcus epidermidis, a non-acid fast bacterium. The capsule of Klebsiella pneumoniae is demonstrated here. Several methods such as Acid Fast Staining Method for Spores (Spores stained bright and protoplasm of the bacillus stains blue), Hansen’s Method,Dorner’s method and Schaeffer and Fulton’s Method are widely applied methods for staining spores in proper.
Commonly used. For confirmation of bacterial presence and identity, we used standard staining including Gram and acid-fast staining [33, 34]. To prepare the bacteria culture slides, a volume of 1 mL of bacterial.
Bacterial staining 1. BACTERIAL STAINING ASAD ,(Med micro), Lecturer in Microbiology Department of Microbiology Thoothukudi Govt. Medical College. 6. By differential staining: The identification depends on the staining of bacteria. And most bacteria can be stained by specific stain ex: Gram +ve bacteria are stained by Gram satin while Gram -ve bacteria don’t take up gram stain.
Tuberculous bacteria can be stained by acid-fast stain specifically and other strains don’t take up this stain.To develop a method for staining acid fast bacilli which excluded highly toxic phenol from the staining solution.
A lipophilic agent, a liquid organic detergent, LOC High Studs, distributed by Amway, was substituted. The acid fast bacilli stained red; nuclei, cytoplasm, and cytoplasmic elements stained blue on a clear background.Acid-Fast Staining: Ziehl-Neelsen Method • Fastness means to retain the dye when challenged by a decolorizer • Procedure: • Carbol fuschin dye is used with steam • Acid-fast cells, when decolorized with acid alcohol, are able to retain the dye because of the high wax content • Cerise or pink violet = acid-fast positive • Non-acid-fast cells will readily decolorize and be.
