General description

Zinc Formalin Fixative is a non-precipitating fixative. This fixative is compatible with histochemical, immunochemical and special stains. It may be used with automated tissue processors and also in manual methods. The zinc chloride component of the formulation increases the rigidity of cellular components to withstand subsequent processing, sectioning and staining procedures. Tissue specimens initially fixed using 10% neutral buffered formalin solution may be post-fixed using the Zinc Formalin Fixative.

Application

Zinc Formalin Fixative is an excellent morphological preservation of nuclear and cytoplasmic components. Can replace neutral buffered formalin for routine tissue and immunohistochemical procedures. It is a non-precipitating fixative which can be used with automated and manual methods.

Preparation Note

The Zinc Formalin Fixative is supplied ready-to-use.

Storage and Stability

Store the product at room temperature. Do not freeze.
