Ultra pure, methanol free,16% aqueous formaldehyde in 10 ml in pre-scored ampules is suitable for both electron and light microscopy. It easily penetrates large blocks of tissue. Eliminates the step of depolymerization paraformaldehyde prior to use. When used in combination with glutaraldehyde, it fixes delicate tissues such as brain in vascular perfusion. Used in Karnovsky's fixative in conjunction with your own buffer system.
Prepared from paraformaldehyde.Store at room temperature, cold temperatures storage encourage the formation of trioxymethylene as a white precipitate.
