Rapid detection of Pneumocystis carinii in bronchoalveolar lavage samples by using Cellufluor staining.
J Clin Microbiol. 1990 Feb; 28(2):393-4.JC

Abstract

Cellufluor (Calcofluor white) has been found to be a useful, rapid chemofluorescent stain for detection of Pneumocystis carinii cysts in bronchoalveolar lavage samples. When compared with toluidine blue O and Giemsa stains on 45 specimens (22 positive and 23 negative), the sensitivity and specificity of the Cellufluor stain were 95 and 100%, respectively.
