MileGREEN is a solvent, consisting of iso-paraffins and replaces xylene both in the clearing and mounting process. Moreover, it can be used for cleaning paraffin contaminated items, for example in the HistosMATE module.
When heated this solution becomes highly effective in extracting lipids from biological tissue. MileGREEN is an almost odourless, non-carcinogenic solvent and has fat and paraffin dissolving properties.
MileGREEN formulation of low toxicity overcomes the drawbacks commonly associated with xylene, a product that is hazardous for the human nervous system. MileGREEN also provides optimal preservation of fat cells; structure, nuclear, and cytoplasmic morphology.
MileGREEN is available in a 5L tank
