Chemicals and Solutions to Help Diagnostic Tests and Analyses 

Chemicals and solutions are often called a major part of pathology laboratories. Various chemicals and solutions like histology and chemistry reagents are required to detect and measure patient samples. Whether it is clinical, hematology, microbiology, immunology, or other clinical laboratory tests, mixing patient samples with reagents helps bring a specific reaction that helps as an indicator in analyzing and diagnosing the sample. Each of these reagents serves a unique purpose, and having them is a must in laboratories for diagnostic tests and analyses.

What are the Types of Chemicals and Solutions Needed in Laboratories 

Chemistry Reagents

1. Acetic Acid

Acetic acid is a colorless and clear acid solution with a pungent smell. The chemistry reagent is useful for protein precipitation and DNA extraction from patient samples. It is a vital component for cellular fixation in pap smears, especially in cytology.

2. Acetone

Acetone is a critical part of chemistry reagents for lab tests. It helps process tissues and dehydrate specimen samples. It is even used to extract lipids and fats from blood samples to analyze the accurate levels.

3. Water Reagent

The dilution process is the most important when working in the clinical laboratory. Water reagent in distilled or deionized form is basic for diluting samples and experimenting with results. It even helps maintain the reliability of chemical reactions during different testing procedures.

Histology Reagents

1. Trichloroacetic Acid

Histology reagents like trichloroacetic acid are fixative and dehydrating agents. It helps preserve cellular structures and remove water from the tissues of the sample collected. The purpose of dehydrating is to help facilitate embedding and sectioning procedures.

2. Neutral Phosphate Buffered Formalin Fixative

The neutral phosphate buffered formalin fixative is a widely used component in patient samples for histopathological examination. This histology reagent contains formaldehyde in a buffered solution that extends the preservation of the tissue samples while keeping their pH levels stable.
