The Ziehl—Neelsen stainalso known as the acid-fast stainwas first described by two German doctors: It is a special bacteriological stain used to identify acid-fast organisms, mainly Mycobacteria.

Mycobacterium tuberculosis is the most important of this group because it is responsible for tuberculosis TB. Other important Mycobacterium species involved in human disease colorqcion Mycobacterium lepraeMycobacterium kansasiiMycobacterium marinumMycobacterium bovisMycobacterium africanum and members of the Mycobacterium avium complex.

Acid-fast organisms like Mycobacterium contain large amounts of lipid substances within their cell walls called mycolic acids.

These acids resist staining by ordinary methods such as a Gram stain. The reagents used for Ziehl—Neelsen staining are — carbol fuchsinacid alcohol, and methylene blue.


Acid-fast bacilli are bright red after staining. A variation on this staining method is used in mycology to differentially stain acid-fast incrustations in the cuticular hyphae coloracionn certain species of fungi in the genus Russula. The Ziehl—Neelsen stain can also hinder diagnosis in the case of paragonimiasis because the eggs in an ovum and parasite sputum sample OnP can be dissolved by the stain, and is often used in this clinical setting because signs and symptoms of paragonimiasis closely resemble those of TB.

A typical AFB stain procedure involves dropping the cells in suspension onto a slide, then air drying the liquid and heat fixing the cells. The slide is flooded with carbol fuchsin, which is then heated to dry and rinsed off in tap water.

Thereafter, the cells are stained in methylene blue and viewed under a microscope under oil immersion. Studies have shown that an AFB stain without a culture has a poor negative predictive value.

Initially, carbol fuchsin stains every cell. When they are de-stained with acid-alcohol, only non-acid-fast bacteria get de-stained since they do not have a thick, waxy lipid layer like acid-fast bacteria. When counter stain is applied, non-acid-fast bacteria pick it up and become blue methylene blue or green malachite green when viewed under the microscope. Acid-fast bacteria retain carbol fuchsin so they appear red.
