The periodic acid-schiff staining liquid is mainly used to show glycogen and other polysaccharides. The periodic acid oxidizes the polysaccharide glycol base group in the cell to an aldehyde group. The aldehyde group is combined with the colorless magenta of Shiff’s solution, stained red and localized on the cytolymph.
