General description

Spurr resin is a hydrophobic resin. It is less viscous than epon mixtures and is easier to dispense. The low viscosity of the resin contributes to its penetration in tissue, mineral and dense structures. A low viscosity of 60 cps also allows easy penetration into a variety of difficult materials.


Exceptional penetration for tissue, mineral, and dense structures. A low viscosity of 60 cps allows easy penetration into a variety of difficult materials. Spurr low viscosity embedding kit has been used to embed histological samples like tissues, organs and embryos. It may be used to prepare mineral specimens for polishing. The low viscosity of the Spurr formulation allows rapid infiltration into tissues, minerals, and other dense structures.
