Primary container: white bottle in polyethylene terephthalate (PET). Useful capacity 2.5 liters. HDPE cap. Tamper evident cap. The polyethylenterephthalate is a thermoplastic polymer of the polyester family. PET is an optimal oxygen, carbon dioxide and other gasses barrier. This material has an high resistance to ultraviolet radiation and an inertia toward the mainly chemical agents (solvents: xylene, limonene, liquid paraffines, alcohols, acids, bases etc.). It is biologically inert. It constitutes a good water and humidity barrier. It shows a great hardness and mechanical resistance. The bottle has an optimal grip. The absence of the handles reduces space for storage. The anti-dropping cap permits a precise and clean use. Secondary container: carton box.
Primary container: white bottle in High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). Useful capacity 500 ml. HDPE cap. Tamper evident cap.
Product for the preparation of cyto-histological samples for optical microscopy.
Density 1,028 (29°C)
Histological and cytological fixative. It gives brilliant staining with cytoplasmic stains (recommended for trichrome staining). It leaves tissues soft and glycogen is well preserved. Not recommended for hemopoietic organs, hemorrhagic tissues and nervous system.
1) Volume ratio specimen/ fixative 1 : 50
2) Specimen thickness1 cm max
3) Fixation time at room temperature: for specimens up to 5 mm 5 hours, for greater thickness 1-3 days
Note: do not wash in water after fixation, but pass directly in alcohol for dehydration.
