Sigma-Aldrich has launched the STAIN EXPERT, a web-based application developed to assist customers with the retrieval of stain and dye information.
Located on the Sigma-Aldrich Hematology and Histology web page, the STAIN EXPERT is designed to provide an intuitive interface for navigating staining procedures, catalog information, product specifications, Material Safety Data Sheets, Certificates of Analysis and technical bulletins.
A Flash Platform is designed to guide customers through a wide range of staining procedures while reducing the complexity of multi-step processes.
Reagent preparation and staining results are extensively covered and the integration of the Sigma-Aldrich web search engine with recommended chemicals ensures that customers can quickly and easily find what they are looking for.
"This application provides an engaging and innovative user experience for retrieving stain-related content," commented Mark Frei, Technical Marketing Specialist at Sigma-Aldrich, "and offers a dynamic online experience worth returning to."
