This is a mixture of fine paraffin waxes and copolymer alloys in convenient pellets. PolyFin® produces ultra-thin compression free ribbons. It functions flawlessly in pressure/vacuum fluid flow processors and tissue embedding centers.
PolyFin® provides maximum support for both hard and soft tissue samples while maintaining exceptional clarity.
The low 55°C melting point eliminates excessive heat distortion during tissue processing. Additionally, the exceptional paraffin formulation eliminates the need to reduce the waterbath temperature when cutting CNS tissue sections.
