English: Gram staining (or Gram's method) is an empirical method of differentiating bacterial species into two large groups (Gram-positive and Gram-negative) based on the chemical and physical properties of their cell walls. The method is named after its inventor, the Danish scientist Hans Christian Gram (1853 – 1938), who developed the technique in 1884 to discriminate between pneumococci and Klebsiella pneumoniae bacteria.
Deutsch: Gram-Färbung ist eine empirische Methode zur Unterscheidung von Bakterienarten in zwei große Gruppen (Gram-positive und Gram-negative) auf der Grundlage der chemischen und physikalischen Eigenschaften ihrer Zellwände. Durch das Färbeverfahren erscheinen im Lichtmikroskop grampositive Bakterien blau, gramnegative rot. Die Methode ist nach ihrem Erfinder, dem dänischen Wissenschaftler Hans Christian Gram (1853 - 1938) benannt, der 1884 die Technik entwickelte, um zwischen Pneumokokken und Klebsiella pneumoniae Bakterien zu unterscheiden.
