General description

Neo-Clear (xylene substitute) - for microscopy, is an aliphatic hydrocarbon mixture that can substitute the same applications as xylene in the histo-medical lab - histoprocessing, deparaffination and clearing after dehydration in staining process. It is not necessary to change methods or incubation times when using Neo-Clear instead of xylene. As the evaporation rate of Neo-Clear is lower then xylene, it has less odor and the disturbing smell in the lab is reduced significantly. Neo-Clear is more sensitive against water in solvents (turbidity can occur), thus, it is essential to avoid technical qualities of solvents. It is an IVD registered product and CE certified, thus can be used for clinical diagnostic purposes. For more details, please see instructions for use (IFU). The IFU can be downloaded from this webpage.
