Batches of osmium-ammine (OA) complex vary considerably in staining properties when used in a Feulgen-like reaction for selective staining of DNA-containing structures. An alternative procedure for preparation of Schiff-like reagent from OA complex is described. It is based on generation of H2SO3, respectively SO2, within the OA solution and ensures more favorable conditions for production of a Schiff-like stain than bubbling with SO2 does. The method is reproducible and yields high staining intensity. Data obtained suggest that the ability of OA complex to produce Feulgen-like staining is strongly influenced by variations in its chemical composition. Their unfavorable effect can be overcome by selecting suitable conditions for preparation of a Schiff-like reagent. Conditions for obtaining specific and sensitive Feulgen-like staining are determined.
