The Formalin Substitute
The ideal fixative should present a low level of toxicity, produce optimal H&E, IHC and histochemical staining and allow recovery of DNA, RNA, and Protein for molecular analysis.
FineFIX is a patented formalin-free and water-based concentrate. When diluted with ethanol, its formulation of low toxicity additives overcomes the drawbacks commonly associated with the use of pure ethanol or ethanol-based fixatives (e.g. significant tissue shrinkage, vacuolization and pyknotic nuclei).
FineFIX also provides optimal preservation of tissue antigens, nuclear and cytoplasmic morphology and reduced lysis of red blood cells with preservation of the cytoplasmic membranes.
Available tanks: 5L or 10L tank concentrate
