A rapid, simple method for staining bacterial flagella.

Abstract

A simple modification of Gray's flagellar staining procedure is described. It can be used on air-dried smears or directly on wet mounts of motile bacteria. The stained bacterial flagella can be observed with phase-contrast or bright-field optics. No rigorous cleaning of slides, counterstains, or any washing procedures are required with the staining method, making it very suitable for routine examinations.
