Unique Formulation to Soften Keratin
Made for very hard complex keratinized hair, nail and skin samples common in Mohs Histology laboratories. Hair, nail and skin samples that have been processed tend to flex and turn becoming difficult to cut and hold on slides for staining.
Processing hardens these samples and presents the challenge of cutting complete sections or sections without a “Venetian Blind Effect”.
After processing and embedding, face specimen paraffin block and soak in solution for 5-10 minutes, then proceed with cutting ribbon.
