Because any acid-fast bacilli take up this dye and fluoresce brightly against a dark background when viewed with a fluorescence microscope, the smear can be examined under 400ϫ (high-dry) magnification rather than 1,000ϫ (oil-immersion) magnification. As a result, the slide can be screened more quickly for the presence of acid-fast bacilli (see colorplate 9).
