Abstract:

Fluorochrome studies of microorganisms in physiological saline solution are reported. In one study suspensions of the organisms were mixed with the fluorochrome solutions and in another the organisms were added to the slides pretreated with fluorochromes. It wa found that 16 fluorochromes produce fluorescent staining of microorganisms, with an especially high degree of differentiation achieved with Acridine Yellow and Acridine Orange. The ground fluorescence of the fluorochromes is so slight that it has no appreciable effect on the test results.
