Conga Red is an acidic stain primarily used to stain bacterial cells to test for capsules . The Conga Red stain is used to stain a microscope slide background against the colorless cell. Then a basic stain like Maneval's Stain is used to stain the cell. The capsule surrounding some cells will repel the stains and appear colorless against a red (Conga Red) background. The cell inside the capsule will be stained light purple from the Maneval's Stain. (MORE)
