It is the Carbolic Acid(Carbol Fuchsin).

     We would like to know if anyone knows what purpose the melted phenol
     crystals serve in the recipe from the AFIP manual for the Basic
     Fuchsin for Kinyoun's method.
     Is it part of the stain or is it used as a preservative?

     Thanks for your help
