Embedding medium for the preparation of the tissue sample to the cut with cryostat
OCT Compound is a water-soluble blend of glycols and resins that provides a convenient specimen matrix for cryostat sectioning at temperatures of -10˚C and below.
OCT leaves no residue on slides during staining procedure, eliminating undesirable background staining.
Dissected tissue, mounted in OCT Compound can be frozen between -20 and -80˚C.
Developed and optimized for chromogenic IHC experiments, OCT Compound will not dull microtome knives.
