About Us

Our story, reagent innovation

Forward Thinking

In the 1970’s, a group of chemists began working with the University of Utah to define and create diagnostic stains and reagents for the medical industry. The innovative and

quality solutions became so popular that it lead to the formation of a manufacturing company. The company, Volu-Sol, relocated its offices from Henderson, Nevada to Salt Lake City in 1995 and currently resides in an 11,000+ sq. ft. facility.

Problem Solvers

Volu-Sol’s history of manufacturing high-quality diagnostic stains and reagents for more than 30 years means that the company is recognized in Hematology, Microbiology,

Histology, Cytology and additional areas. In 2013, Volu-Sol became a woman-owned private business. Volu-Sol is certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) through the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the nation’s largest third party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women in the US.

Reagent Innovation

Continuing in the chemical reagent research of Romanowsky, Wright and Giemsa on polychrome methylene blue solutions, Volu-Sol has improved the production process, quality,

and shelf life of stains. The classical differential stains of Wright and Wright-Giemsa, Hematoxylin, Acid Fast Base and others have been thoroughly researched on the basis of production, process, variables that affect stain quality and composition, and stain age in comparison to stain strength for an optimal shelf life. Analytical methods have been employed to ensure strict standards and to avoid the notorious batch variations common to many stains. In the 1990’s Volu-Sol trademarked Stat and Statim stains—rapid staining modifications of the classical differential staining methods, which prove as widely used solutions today. To this day, Volu-Sol continues to develop new stains and to pioneer rapid staining and diagnostic formulations. Volu-Sol maintains stringent quality controls and checks for contamination, stability, strength and variability, which help guarantee the safety and shelf-life of its products.
