Much work has been done up to the present time on the general staining of cells, but. the workers have been greatly limited in their attempts to stain one particular portion of a cell, such as the chromatin material, without staining the remaining portion of that same cell. The ideal stain should effect only the specified portion of the cell and the remaining portion which is not to be stained should remain stainless and void of color. There. has been a lack of reliable stain for differentiating the chromatin in the cytology of lower plants and Protista.
