General description

Fluorinert FC-40 is a clear, colorless, non-conductive, and non-flammable liquid that is part of the Fluorinert family of products manufactured by 3M. It is a perfluorinated fluid that has excellent thermal and chemical stability and has a high electric strength, making it suitable for use as a heat transfer fluid. Fluorinert FC-40 has a low boiling point (about 155 °C)It is an immiscible fluorocarbon oil.

Application

Fluorinert FC-40 has been used to evaluate its compatibility with real time quantitative PCR. It has been used in the cytoskeletal contractility assay to deposit samples in dish.
For possible use as a high density chase solution in density gradient studies.

Packaging

Packaged and distributed by Sigma-Aldrich
