Orthochromasia In biology, orthochromatic refers to the greyish staining because of acidophilic and basophilic mixture in the cell.
Eosinophilic Eosin is an acidic dye; thus, the structure being stained is basic and as a corollary, is acidophilic.
Acidianus infernus Acidianus infernus is a species of archaeon. It is aerobic, extremely acidophilic, thermophilic (hence its name) and sulfur-metabolizing. Its type strain is strain DSM 3191.
Streptomyces guanduensis Streptomyces guanduensis is a acidophilic bacterium species from the genus of "Streptomyces"which has been isolated from pine forest soil from Guandu in the Yunnan Province in China.
Sulfobacillus acidophilus Sulfobacillus acidophilus is a species of moderately thermophilic mineral-sulphide-oxidizing bacteria. It is Gram-positive, acidophilic and ferrous-iron-oxidising as well.

Sulfolobus tokodaii Sulfolobus tokodaii is a thermophilic archaeon. It is acidophilic and obligately aerobic. The type strain is 7 (JCM 10545). Its genome has been sequenced.
Acidipila rosea Acidipila rosea is a Gram-negative, chemoorganotrophic, acidophilic and non-motile bacterium from the genus of Acidipila which has been isolated from an acid mine drainage.
Acidophile (histology) It describes the microscopic appearance of cells and tissues, as seen through a microscope, after a histological section has been stained with an acidic dye. The most common such dye is eosin, which stains acidophilic substances red and is the source of the related term eosinophilic. Note that a single cell can have both acidophilic substances/organelles and basophilic substances/organelles, albeit some have historically had so much of one stain that the cell itself is called a eosinophil.
Picrophilus "Picrophilus" is an extremely acidophilic genus within Euryarchaeota. These microbes are the most acidophilic organisms currently known, with the ability to grow at a pH of -0.06. They were first isolated from samples taken from acidic hot springs and dry hot soil in Hokkaido (Japan). They are obligate acidophiles and are unable to maintain their membrane integrity at pH values higher than 4. While phylogenetically related to other organisms within Thermoplasmata, unlike "Thermoplasma" and "Ferroplasma", "Picrophilus" contains an S-layer cell wall.
Ferroplasma The genus "Ferroplasma" consists solely of three species. Its type species, "F. acidophilum", is an acidophilic iron-oxidizing member of the Euryarchaeota. It is generally found in acidic mine tailings, being especially abundant in cases of severe acid mine drainage, where other organisms such as "Acidithiobacillus" and "Leptospirillum" have lowered the pH of the environment such that the obligately acidophilic "F. acidophilum" is allowed to flourish.
Prolactin cell Prolactin cells are acidophilic by hematoxylin & eosin stains and comprise about 20% of all cells in the anterior pituitary gland. If these cells undergo neoplastic transformation, they will give rise to a prolactinoma, a prolactin-secreting pituitary adenoma.
