Grocott's Methenamine Silver (GMS) Stain Kit is intended to identify fungal organisms and Pneumocystis jiroveci
(formerly known as carinii
) in tissue sections on the Artisan Link and Artisan Link Pro Staining Systems. Fungi and Pneumocystis jiroveci
are stained black while other tissue elements are stained green. This stain is not recommended for cytology specimens.
