Information Sheet

Process
The Gram's Stain process is based on Hans Christian Gram's discovery that bacteria are divided into two groups: those that retain a stain (Gram positive) and those that do not (Gram negative). This process involves staining a sample of bacteria on a slide with Hucker's Crystal Violet and then fixing it with iodine solution.

Solvent (acetone-alcohol) is then applied in order to wash out (de-colorize) the Crystal Violet from Gram negative cells. The Gram positive cells will retain the Crystal Violet stain. After quickly rinsing in water, Safranin O is applied to the sample in order to re-colorize the Gram negative cells; this final step in order to provides greater contrast in the Gram negative cells and make them easier to see.
