Spurr Low Viscosity Embedding Kit


Spurr Low Viscosity Mini 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: 55ml NSA, 20ml ERL-4221, 12ml DER736, 5ml DMAE, 3 x 10ml syringes, 1 x 5ml graduated syringe and 2 wooden mixers
