Back in 1884 a guy named gram developed a staining technique to visualise bacterial samples (now called a gram stain)it was really important because, as the story goes, pneumonia was a big problem at the time and there were three causes unknown (later identified as viral pneumonia) and two types of bacterial pneumonia caused by either. The gram stain is a differential staining technique used to classify & categorize bacteria into two major groups: bacterial suspensions in broth:. Staining: staining simply means coloring of the micro organisms with the dye that emphasizes and elucidate different important structures of microorganisms including bacteria, virus, protozoa and etc.
Because bacteria are, for the most part, transparent, we use stains to give them color for microscopic observation making a bacterial smear prepares the bacteria to be stained and is the first step of most staining procedures.
