Abstract

A simple technique for fixing and staining peritrich ciliates involving fixation in phosphate buffered formalin and staining with Semichon's Acetic-Carmine is presented. This procedure appears to be superior to conventional methods for achieving relaxation of zooids and for differentiation of the macronucleus.
