General description

Trypan Blue is a tetrasulfonated anionic, hydrophilic dye.

Application

Trypan blue is a routinely used for viability testing for diverse cell types including frozen sperm and aortic muscle cells exposed to antifungal agents. It is also employed as a collagen stain in a Van Gieson procedure. To stain amyloid, Trypan blue is considered as a blue alternative to Congo red in Puchtler-Bennhold stains.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Trypan Blue is excluded by most living cells, but can be taken into phagocytes and certain other cells.

Alveolar macrophages (AM) in the lung have been documented to play pivotal roles in inflammation and fibrosis (silicosis) following inhalation of crystalline silica (CSiO(2)). In contrast, exposure to either titanium dioxide (TiO(2)) or amorphous silica (ASiO(2)) is considered relatively benign.
