EUKITT® UV is a UV-curing mounting medium with all the well-known beneficial properties of the EUKITT® series and a true innovation in the mounting technology. EUKITT® UV does not contain any solvents, therefore only 50% of the usual amount is needed compared to conventional systems. Using EUKITT® UV almost no shrinkage can be detected.
The mounting medium may be used on tissue sections in non-polar solvents such as xylene or xylene substitutes as well as directly on sections in pure alcohols.
The viscosity of EUKITT® UV is very user-friendly. After being applied to the tissue, the cover glass can be placed as usual. Subsequently, a transfer break of at least 120 sec. is maintained prior to irradiation in order to ensure an ideal penetration into the tissue.
