General description

10% Neutral buffered formalin (NBF) is the most commonly used fixative for light microscopy. 10% NBF is well suited for large throughput laboratories and requires a relatively short period of fixation, but can also be used for the long-term storage of tissue. Formalin fixation is thought to form between the aldehydes and the proteins, creating a gel, thus retaining cellular constituents in their in vivo relationship.

Application

Formalin, 10%, Neutral Buffered, Wintergreen Scented has been used as a fixative in transformation and tumorigenicity assay and in immunohistostaining.
Intended for use as a general purpose histological fixative. Wintergreen oil has been added to the standard formulation to provide a wintergreen scent.
