Abstract

C.I. basic blue 54, a sulfur containing azo textile dye, stained the nucleus and cytoplasm of normal and leukemic monocytes bright red-violet. Essential for the staining reaction was a brief final rinse in a pH 3.6 acetic acid-sodium acetate buffer. Coloration of the type found in monocytes was not observed in other types of mature and immature leukocytes.
