The “Biopsy Liver with Special Stains Test” is a diagnostic procedure performed to examine liver tissue in detail. This test is crucial for diagnosing liver diseases, assessing the extent of liver damage, and guiding treatment decisions. During the procedure, a small sample of liver tissue is collected through a needle. This sample is then subjected to various special stains that highlight different elements within the tissue, providing a detailed view of the liver’s condition.

Special stains can detect the presence of abnormal substances that accumulate in liver diseases, such as iron (indicating hemochromatosis) or copper (indicating Wilson’s disease), and can also help in identifying specific types of liver damage, fibrosis, or cirrhosis. This detailed analysis assists in diagnosing conditions like fatty liver disease, hepatitis, and liver cancer.

At DNA Labs UAE, the “Biopsy Liver with Special Stains Test” is offered at a cost of 750 AED. DNA Labs UAE is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and experienced professionals to ensure accurate and reliable results. The test is conducted following strict safety and quality protocols, providing patients with critical information for their liver health management.

Test Details

A liver biopsy is a medical procedure in which a small sample of liver tissue is removed for examination under a microscope. Special stains can be used to enhance the visualization of specific structures or substances within the liver tissue.

Some commonly used special stains for liver biopsies include:

  1. Hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stain: This is a routine stain used to visualize the overall structure of the liver tissue, including hepatocytes (liver cells), blood vessels, and connective tissue.
  2. Periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) stain: This stain is used to identify glycogen, a storage form of glucose, within liver cells. It can help in the diagnosis of certain liver diseases, such as glycogen storage diseases.
  3. Masson’s trichrome stain: This stain is used to differentiate collagen fibers (blue) from other tissue components. It can help in the evaluation of liver fibrosis or scarring.
  4. Perls’ Prussian blue stain: This stain is used to detect iron deposits within liver cells. It can be helpful in the diagnosis of iron overload disorders, such as hemochromatosis.
  5. Oil Red O stain: This stain is used to visualize lipid droplets within liver cells. It can be used to assess the presence of fatty liver disease.

These special stains, in combination with other laboratory tests and clinical information, can provide valuable insights into the underlying pathology of liver diseases. They can help in the diagnosis, grading, and staging of various liver conditions, guiding appropriate treatment decisions.
