Spurr Low Viscosity Embedding kit provides exceptional penetration in tissue, mineral, and dense structures. A low viscosity of 60cps allows easy penetration into a variety of difficult materials. May be used to prepare mineral specimens for polishing.

The low viscosity of the Spurr formulation allows rapid infiltration into tissues, minerals and other dense structures. Facilitates embedments with high lipid contents or hard membranes or highly vacuolated parenchymatous tissues.

Kit Contains: 450g NSA, 250g ERL 4221, 250g D.E.R. 736, 100g DMAE
