Bio-Optica’s routine stains and special staining kits have earned a wide acclaim in Italy and through the World during the years because of some features like the ease of use, the reproducible results, the predictable cost, the user safety and a limited environmental impact.

In addition to the Automatic Stainers, Bio-Optica offers great solutions for the manual staining.

Manual staining set


The simplest and most economical cyto-histological staining system, made of thermoplastic resin: the 10-10 manual staining set consists of twelve dishes with lid (capacity 300 ml) in a steel structure and a slide-rack for twenty-five slides.
