General description

Glycerol - for fluorescence microscopy is used as a mounting medium for stained histology specimens (e.g. toluidine blue stain, Cat. 104172 ). It is primarily designed to preserve the fluorescence of durable specimens for future diagnosis. 100 ml are sufficient for approx. 200 - 300 applications. The mounting agent 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.
