Silver staining

Silver staining

Silver staining is used to identify fungi in paraffin-embedded tissue section. The mucopolysaccharide components of the fungal cell wall are oxidized to release aldehyde groups. The aldehyde groups then react with the silver nitrate, reducing it to a metallic silver, rendering them visible. Results: fungi - black; background - green.
