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, water-based concentrate. When diluted with ethanol, its formulation with 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.
FineFIX is available in the following sizes:
- 5L tank concentrate
- 10L tank concentrate
