General description

Entellan- rapid mounting medium for microscopy, is a ready-to-use, water-free mounting medium for microscopy for the permanent mounting of specimen is an anhydrous mounting medium for microscopy used for the permanent mounting and storage of specimens, and consists of a polymer made of mixed acrylates dissolved in toluene. As it contains toluene, it should be used with water-free specimens that have been processed with xylene previous mounting. Due to its registration as IVD product and CE certification, it can be used in the manual or automated application in a diagnostic laboratory. For more details, please see instructions for use (IFU). The IFU can be downloaded from this webpage.
