These slides were prepared sometime prior to the 1950s by an individual named Kirschbaum.
Bouinís fluid contains picric acid, which has the property that it renders tissue more readily stained by acid dyes. Harrisí Hematoxylin is a nuclear stain that produces a deep purple blue. Heidenhainís Hematoxylin uses two solutions, the first being an iron mordant such as ferric chloride or ferrous ammonium sulfate followed by an application of hematoxylin.
