Abstract

Most of the dyes used in histology and cytology are manufactured for use in the textile industry, printing, food, cosmetics and other colorant
industries. Chemicals used in the study include dyes and stains; the stains used are eosin, acetocarmine, rose bengal, magnesium chloride,
magnesium sulphate, cocaine, menthol, propylene phenoxetol, osmic mercuric chloride, mercuric chloride, acetic acid, glycerin alcohol, phenoxetol,
nitric acid, potassium cyanide. The dyes and stains as chemicals are used to preserve whole mount or to anesthetize the large animals like
trematodes, nematodes, cestodes, arthropods, and molluscs. The study of fresh water and marine invertebrates is not possible unless the use of
above mentioned chemicals.
