Bile Stain Bracelet
The Bile Stain demonstrates bile pigments in tissue. Biliary obstruction may cause excessive amounts of bile pigments in the liver. When red cells ( a component of blood ) degrade it results in a normal production of Bilirubin. In the stain, the tissue colors range from olive green to emerald green depending on the concentration of bile pigment present. Muscle and cell cytoplasm stains yellow and collagen stains pink. So, the colors in my Bile Stain Bracelet demonstrate how bile would show up in the tissue.
