Sink used for Acid Fast Bacilli Kinyoun stain. This is at the lab I’m currently doing my rotations at and I thought it was pretty.
Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative agent for Tuberculosis or TB, has a cell wall that’s high in lipid content. So, it doesn’t stain with regular gram stain; thus, they used acid fast staining techniques with carbolfuchsin.
Victor and Leo!
